You can get food poisoning from casual dining chains. Nausea and diarrhea are the most reported symptoms of TGI Friday's food poisoning and chicken is a commonly reported cause. Undercooked chicken is usually linked to Salmonella and symptoms can include bloody diarrhea and cramping.

Dude that just happened to us today from the dollar general. My son ate one thinking they were ok. I tasted it thinking maybe they were old( we didn't smell first) instantly spit it out. Smelled so bad of chemicals like paint thinner or something. My son is not feeling good. And I can still taste it. I'm sorry this happened to you too.

I am a culinary instructor. A student opened a bag of the TGI Fridays Cheddar & Bacon Potato Skin Snacks in my class that was purchased earlier from a store. She ate one, and then gave them away, because she did not like the taste, the chips... See More made a grand tour of my classroom with my students trying to identify the horrible taste, it finally made it to me where I was sure I could solve the mystery. I ate only one chip...the taste is chemical in nature and has an aftertaste somewhat like that of a detergent or disinfectant. IIt has an aftertaste that will not go away, and caused a tingling and burning situation. We are feeling nauseous and some are reporting a mild headache. I called the number on the back of the bag to only get a prerecorded message to go to their website. I potentially have about 7 poisoned students as well as myself. An investigation on this product needs to happen as well as a product recall.

I also have the open bag in a sealed container as well as an unopened bag that was purchased at the same time. | Symptoms: Nausea, Headache

I've been buying boneless chicken bites (with bbq) for a couple of years now with no problem. Recently, I've been having major issues. Past three times I've bought a box (each of the boxes were bought several weeks apart from one another, so its not a production... See More line issue) I've gotten food poisoning. Most latest was tonight (still actively throwing up before I started typing this). It is overly undercooked, tastes of rubber, and has had traces of plastic inside (not fat, rubberized plastic), pieces large enough that you could pull them out with your hands. Never had to go to the hospital due to food, but I feel like I may need to tonight. Just a warning, don't buy this product, it's not worth the time nor pain. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

I had the Chicken Tortelloni with Broccoli and a Breadstick with a Diet Coke around 1:30 PM on 9/30/2022. About 2 hours later, I had a lot of soft, super-smelly diarrhea until I was completely empty. Since then, I have had ever-increasing nausea, severe lower abdominal bloating... See More (my belly looks like a watermelon), some gassiness, and a headache. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Headache, Bloating, Gas See Less
