Goodbye! and best wishes in your recovery

You can get food poisoning from airline food, such as American Airlines. Airline food caterers have less regulatory oversight and less frequent inspections when compared to other food facilities. Diarrhea and nausea are the most commonly reported symptoms from American Airlines.

American Airlines

I flew first class from HNL to DFW and my mother and I both got food poisoning from the food we ate on the plane. We ate salad, grilled beef, and their grilled filet entree. We think it could’ve be the lettuce since we’ve heard about people... See More getting sick from bagged lettuce recently, but it could’ve been the beef as well. Not fun having food poisoning in an airport for sure. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

Flew from CDG, France to DFW, Texas, USA. I think it was something in the in-flight meal that caused it, based on the timing. Projectile as the plane landed, diarrhea going through customs. Just horrible. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

I believe Monday 8/21 I think salad from an American Airlines flight I think it was the salad on the flight. Flight from CLT to DUB | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea See Less

I was travelling from Dublin, Ireland to Charlotte, North Carolina with American Airlines. For over 24 hours the only food that I consumed was that which was provided on my flight with American Airlines. The specific food I ate was pumpkin curry with rice (it was the... See More only option left for lunch on flight, a warm dish), a barbecue chicken wrap with veg (this was cold dish) and a small tub of chocolate ice cream. I only drank water and 1 sprite zero so I don't think it happened from any drinks. A few hours in to the flight (after eating AA food) I started getting a terrible headache and my stomach didn't feel well. Fast forward 4.5 hours after landing (and about 7 to 8 hours after eating with AA) my headache was much worse and I started vomiting quite a bit. I spent the whole night vomiting, getting body chills with a headache and spent the entire next day (which was meant to be a family vacation at the beach) bedridden with the same symptoms. I'm certain this was caused by American Airlines food as it was the only thing I ate over a 24 hour period. Up to now I've never had a problem with airplane food, but after this experience I will NEVER eat another meal provided by American Airlines. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Headache, Chills See Less
