3 days ago. Grains bowl with chicken. Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

On 8/23/22 I became I’ll within an hour of eating at here. For days I suffered severe abdominal cramps, nausea and diarrhea. The restaurant is not clean and obviously the food is contaminated. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

Have not had any issues with this location before and I order the same bowl every time. Yesterday, I was caught up with work all day and the only meal I consumed was the greens and grains bowl (saffron rice, romaine, harrissa, spicy lamb, tomato+cucumber, persian cucumber,... See More corn and greek vinaigrette + pita bread) did not feel anything till the following morning. Diarrhea and a slight headache. Fast forward to this afternoon, I am insanely nauseous, throwing up and have awful stomach cramps. Cannot even keep water down. Over the last few feeks I have noticed a change in their lamb meatballs. They appear to be under cooked. In which case whenever that happens I tend to set the meat aside. Not sure what happened with last night’s order but safe to say that since I have yet to eat anything else that was the issue. please ensure your meat is cooked thoroughly! | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps, Headache See Less

Horrific food poisoning from the chicken and right rice bowl. Absolutely miserable. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps, Bloating, Stomach Pain See Less

Wife got severe cramps, nausea and vomiting around 1 hour of eating a vegetarian bowl with black lentils, red hummus and saffron rise. It's been five hours and the symptoms remain. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Cramps See Less

I got salmonella from a Greek salad with chicken on July 6. Most sick I’ve ever been in my entire life. Two trips to ER for severe dehydration, diarrhea, fever. My doctor said it was a severe case of salmonella and honestly I am still recovering. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Dehydration See Less

I hope you reported this to the CIty of Alexandria Health Dept (if you are in the city limits) and Virgina health dept. Call the manager of CAVA and tell them. I am so sorry you got sick like that! horrible!

Within a couple of hours of having ate half of my bowl I got extreme cramps and diarrhea that lasted three days, I also threw up numerous times and had horrible heartburn from the harissa chicken | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps, Heartburn See Less

I had a greek salad from CAVA with grilled vegetables on Friday the 29th of July 2022. The following day I felt fatigued, nauseous, had extreme diarrhoea and a headache. My upper abdomen also became very swollen and hard. My whole family reported similar symptoms and we... See More all got different items. The service there was also awful to begin with so safe to say I will not be returning. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Something else, Headache, Fatigue See Less
