Goodbye! and best wishes in your recovery

You can get food poisoning from movie theater food. The most commonly reported symptoms from AMC Theatres are diarrhea and vomiting. It is possible to contract food poisoning from concession food and beverages such as popcorn, pretzels due to sick staff or food handling hygiene.

AMC THEATER

My sister got food poisoning from some movie food on 1/28/2023. We had the same exact breakfast and we were fine but she had pretzel bites in the movie and right after we got out the theater she was feeling nauseous while I was feeling fine. She... See More didn’t eat out the day before either. Fast forward a few days later she got colitis, a bacterial infection that ended up in hospitalization. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

Sodium treatment is dangerously high in the theater popcorn. I have saved the bucket for health department testing. I get headaches for up to 2 days after eating this ignorance. Apparently after many months of complaints, the local GM tasted the popcorn and found sodium to be... See More off the carts and normalized the portion of salt. Unfortunately, according to an assistant manager this Monday 12-26-22 I was informed that the regional manager insisted to up the sodium portion. This again resulted in popcorn I could not eat after a few handfuls, due to my mouth burning and my head starting to de-hydrate in less than 30 minutes. This ignorance needs a formal complaint to the state and local health department. Sodium alone is bad for people's kidneys and liver. if this popcorn is mixed with MSG and other synthetic chemicals people are most likely feeling the ill effects but do not report it or are avoiding the snack itself. | Symptoms: Headache, Dehydration See Less

Ate nearly a large popcorn, lightly drizzled with butter and a dash of yellow popcorn salt. While still in the theater, after about 1 hour of consumption, it hit me. It is now 36 hours later and it is still with me. I have nausea but no fever or diarrhea. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting See Less
