Health authorities are investigating ten cases clinically suggestive of food botulism linked to the consumption of artisanal canned sardines in the Tchin Tchin Wine Bar in Bordeaux, France. Unfortunately, 1 person has died. The problem goes beyond just France and affects diners in Spain and Germany who … See More
also ate at the same establishment.

In detail, the patients exhibited symptoms consistent with food botulism. The initial case, a woman in her thirties, experienced non-specific signs when she first arrived at the Bordeaux University Hospital. However, she later suffered respiratory paralysis at home without a chance to return to the hospital. Cases have been identified not only in France but also in Spain and Germany. It is believed these cases also trace back to the same Bordeaux source of contamination.

The matter came to light after substantial administrative action against Tchin Tchin Wine Bar. All of the restaurant's canned goods have been seized, revealing issues with control in the canned manufacturing process. An analysis of all seized goods is expected by the upcoming Friday. To date, the food symptoms blame the sardines, which were served as is, like tapas.

"Despite the prompt response, it is estimated that around ten additional cases are possible due to the quantity of potentially contaminated product served by the restaurant," stated Thierry Touzet, deputy director of the departmental population protection directorate. Information has been distributed to health professionals by the Ministry of Health to quickly identify new cases. Victims of botulism potentially face long-term effects, especially if they suffer infectious complications. However, a botulinum antitoxin is available that can help shorten hospitalization time.

New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. Lidl US has received no reports or complaints of illness related to this product to date.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

This voluntary recall includes all units of the ready-to-eat Tapas branded Cocktail Shrimp by Lidl, packaged in 7 oz. containers, that may still be in customers’ possession. Affected products will have a UPC of 4056489411499. All product codes currently on the market are subject to the recall. The recall was issued as a result of routine testing, which revealed that the finished product contained the bacteria. Lidl performs this testing on an ongoing basis to help ensure safe and quality products for our customers.

Lidl US has ceased the production and distribution of the product as we continue our investigation in conjunction with the FDA to resolve the issue. If customers have purchased this product, they should not consume the product, and immediately return it to their nearest Lidl store for a full refund.

In case you are experiencing Listeria monocytogenes symptoms, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

United Airline flt# 1172 SJO - IAH

United Airlines
Flight number 1172
San Jose, Costa Rica to Houston Texas
Monday 16 January 2023
First Class
Had the United Airlines scrambled eggs, potatoes, croissant, fruit & yogurt breakfast. On my connecting flight I started feeling worn out, feverish, freezing, cold chills, restless and was squeezing … See More
my rear end closed for dear life the entire 3 hour flight.
Upon exiting my connecting flight, I made a mad dash for the airport restroom and evacuated my bowels. Horrific & violent diarrhea that had a wretched odor. Stunk of food poisoning. Felt nauseous and weak so just sat there with my head against the airport bathroom stall till I had the strength to go to my uber, for what seemed like over 1 hour. The whole time I had a steady flow of liquid stool. Barely survived my uber ride home. Once home had crazy diarrhea and slept for 12+ hours straight. I feel a little better.
Similar symptoms have occurred from eating the United Airlines Snack Box "Tapas" (stay AWAY from that!) & the United Airlines Hamburger. I've even had two attractive stewardesses tell me that United Airlines Hamburger wreaked havoc on their digestive system as well.
United Airlines, please take care of your customers. Im 1k and fly with you every week. I shouldn't have to be concerned about violent diarrhea every time I have a waffle cookie on a United flight. Thank you.  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Something else, Fever, Chills

Central Bar, La Rambla, Barcelona, Spain

1 year ago reported by user-xtzb3686

We had lunch on site (on the street side of Jerusalem and not the one in the market but it's the same store)
We were 10 people: 3 children aged 10, 2 teenagers, 5 adults including an elderly person (76 years old)
We shared tapas, and one … See More
of the children had a salmon dish.
We understood that it was not fresh produce but frozen food, we found the food tasteless, but we were far from imagining the night we were going to spend.
We felt heavy, with difficulty digesting, then at 5 pm the first child vomited, then we all vomited and had diarrhea several times during the night.
We are completely knocked out and we are returning to France when we were supposed to return on Saturday.
I hope that the police will make them close the establishment because selling spoiled products in a fresh and local produce market is a shame.
It's putting people's health and lives in danger!!!  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting
