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.

7/29/22 @ 6:58 PM I just threw up. The only thing I ate today with some popcorn from here and some purple crush soda around noon today. Around 9 AM ate a bowl of Cap’n Crunch cereal would lactose free milk | Symptoms: Vomiting See Less

I was totally fine before watching the movie then once the popcorn was handed to me, it was extremely salty but I still ate it then as soon as I walked out of the movies, I started getting shivers and was very cold. I remember sleeping thinking... See More it will be better the next day but it only got worst! I have been vomiting water and have a terrible fever. My throat also hurts and i am extremely hot in cold areas. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Fever See Less

Yea I was going to say, even with food borne illness you wouldn’t be shivering immediately after eating it. I would have to be at least a few hours after. Sore throats typically aren’t there in food poisoning either.

I ate some mozzarella sticks from the theater at night time and they were made fairly recently. The following morning I experienced excruciating stomach pains and threw up everything in my stomach. I went to the hospital and it’s been almost a week and I still cannot... See More even drink water without feeling my stomach react. I believe I got poisoned from the food, the oil doesn’t seem filtered & have been avoiding to eat anything at all out of fear of dealing with the same pain in my stomach. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain See Less

This isn't the first time and did not put 2 and 2 together until I got really sick last night. Had popcorn. Went to same theater July 3rd and got really sick, stomach cramping, severe stabbing pains in stomach, sweating and vomiting. Went yesterday July 16th and... See More the same exact symptoms, like an instant replay. I will never ever eat or drink anything from here or any theater again, lesson learned. I am still sick right now, this should not happen!!!! | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Sweating, Cramps, Stomach Pain See Less
