    - MARY’S FULLY COOKED CHICKEN BREAST. 10-lb. cases. Lot code: 20297. Use by date 10/23/21.

    We noticed when we took the pizza out of the box that all the topping was on one-side of the pizza, pushed over almost to the edge. We just thought that we would cook it and spread the topping over the pizza more evenly once it was half-cooked. But we still cooked it thoroughly for over 25 minutes.
    I am now thinking that perhaps the pizza had defrosted at some point before we bought it and then had been refrozen. We bought the pizza at about 5pm yesterday.

I looked at the bun from the quarter pounder and it also had burn marks like the bread was burnt from being reheated as only part of the bun was burnt slightly more than the rest, but was still firm like bread gets after its sat out from being reheated again. I puked twice and I have a throbbed in my neck from the force of the puking. I have a oversalted and greasy taste in the back of my throat and this is very discomforting. I feel very sick to my stomach still and its very uneasy. I would like some action taken see the images for yourself. See Less
