Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting Fever Cramps Headache Weakness Stomach Pain Body Ache
“I ordered a steak and chicken bowl on Wednesday June 24th, 2020. It is now Saturday June 27th, and I’m still having stomach pains, diarrhea, and a throbbing headache. I woke up on Thursday morning feeling so weak I couldn’t even ball my fist my whole body was aching and... See More the first thing I did was throw up and use the toilet. On Thursday I could not eat anything for the whole day, anything I ate I vomited back up in less than an hour, I had a fever of 100.4 for the whole day as well. Friday Morning I woke up and the first thing I did was vomit as well and the whole day I was running to the bathroom. Please be aware im not the only one this has happened too. Go on google and search them go to the reviews and click “Newest”, at least 3 other people had food poisoning. This is really disgusting and disappointing, im a regular citizen trying to buy food from a public restaurant and I have to worry if I get food poising or not? They and food poising has been acquainted for more than 4 years now there really is a problem now. They are literally trying to kill us. If a little boy or little girl ate from there and got food poising their body would not be able to handle it. I feel like I need 100k from them because they literally tried to take my life when all I was doing is supporting a public restaurant. This really has to stop, this is the first and last time I will ever have food poisoning. Even as im typing this my stomach is cramping. I’m never eating from there ever again in my whole life. Their stores need to be shutdown worldwide.
