After a busy day at work with only coffee and water all day, I decided to stop at a fast food restaurant for a bite to eat. On February 13, 2024 I visited the Burger King located at 1708 Raleigh Rd Pkwy Wilson NC 27893. I ordered … See More
the Candied Whopper Meal combo. I don't usually eat fast food, but I was pressed for time. I ignored the rude drive thru workers because it was 9:35 pm and they closed at 10:00 pm. I thought to myself why isn't it hot if I just ordered it? I looked through it to make sure I didn't see anything odd or a weird smell. I consumed the meal and it was edible, just not the best. Approximately 5:00 am, I woke up with the worst stomach pains in my life which continued throughout the day. Later that evening, I experienced more cramps and diarrhea. The diarrhea symptoms continued until the next day along with vomiting. I hate to be graphic, but both were gray in color. I immediately called my doctor. I explained the burger was the only solid food I consumed on 02/13/2024 and I hadn't consumed anything else since. She said the symptoms are related to food poisoning and to only consume water until the symptoms go away. The bodily fluids changed from gray to almost clear. After the 4th day, the vomiting and diarrhea stopped. I was told to only consume foods like jello, apple sauce, steamed rice, etc. I called the restaurant twice to report my concerns to the manager. I'm certain I wasn't the only person in line served bad meat that day. The manager referred me to Sanlar Enterprises DBA Burger King at 252-291-5335. I left messages on 02/14/2024, 02/15/2024, and 02/16/2024 without no response. I called the restaurant again explaining I was unable to reach anyone. Again, they said it was nothing they can do. I called Sanlar Enterprises again on 02/29/2024 and was able to reach a live person. The lady remembered the messages I left and said she gave the message to Bob and assumed he called back. She said she would relay the message. After no response, I called again on 04/10/2024. I received a call back today around 5:00 pm. Bob immediately told me he was having a bad day. I told him I was sorry to hear that. He asked for the reason of my call. I explained what happened. His response was " Unless you can present a doctor's note stating BURGER KING gave you food poisoning, there's nothing I can do. Of course you're going to say MY store gave you food poisoning " and chuckled. I said: Sir, my concern is other people could have gotten sick just like me and that store needs to do a better job handling food. Most likely they didn't cook fresh burgers close to closing time. His response was " The Wilson County Health Department are in their all the time, so I don't know what else to tell you". He also said no one else got food poisoning from his store. It took 2 months to get a call back. I should have taken heed as soon as he said he was having a bad day. He could care less of the physical pain, discomfort and sick days I had to give up because of this. If Burger King Corporation has people like this representing their company, they can't get anymore of my hard earned money. If anyone in the Wilson area visited this location on February 13, 2024 and got sick, please leave a comment. Thank you.  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps, Stomach Pain

On Thursday 04 April 24, I ate at Burger King around 7pm, a classic menu with Burger fries. I had a chicken burger, at meal time nothing to report. The evening went normally with no stomachache. I didn't eat anything after that. It was at 2am that … See More
I started to have an extremely stomachache accompanied by vomiting. The first ones were very painful, I vomited 7 times during the night accompanied by uncontrollable diarrhea.
I could not sleep all night, the diarrhea and vomiting continued into the morning.
I didn't eat all day because I was very sick.
I waited until the night of Friday to Saturday with a lot of concern, I was right because I also vomited 6 times and slept very little.
On Sunday morning it is a little better after more than 2 days of fasting.
Very painful and unpleasant experience, I am not ready to set foot in a Burger King again  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain
