Checkers

February 21,2024 . Last week. I had purchased a Danish Custard pastry from Checkers, Hartebeespoort. There was mold in it. I have been to a doctor who prescribed medication for my symptoms
I purchased a Danish Custard pastr from Checkers Hartebeespoort Wednesday 21 February 2024, I had... See More eaten into the pastry and halfway through noticed a rotting/mold on the Custard as well as the pastry was burnt. Immediately I stopped eating the pastry. I emailed Checkers Hartebeespoort and they offered me a replacement and brushed it off, I asked the representative "how can you replace something that made me sick I have already lost trust in Checkers " I then found a Complaint number on Google and sent a whatsapp message with the pictures. I then got some Gaviscon and Immodium as since then I have had an upset, runny tummy. Eventually on Friday I went to see a doctor as these symptoms have not stopped. The doctor has given me medication and today 5 days later I am still in pain with the same symptoms, no one has contacted me today. Last week when I had spoken to someone else from Head Office she had told me that there was mold on the pastry. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting See Less

On the morning of December 10th around 2am I got a phone call from my dad who watches my child while I go to work. My dad said that my child was throwing up and it looked like chicken nuggets & frozen Rally’s (checkers) French fries which... See More I did serve my child around 6:30pm on December 9th. My child is 2 years old and would not stop throwing up. I took my child to the nearest ER (I thought it was a 24hr bug). At this time it’s about 7am in the morning they gave my child a zofran shot. From 2am to 8am my baby was throwing up. There was nothing in my child’s system at that point it was bile coming up. On December 11th my mom came into town & made dinner using the same French fries (not knowing the French fries where the cause) and it’s currently 8:38 am on December 12th and I am extremely sick. I have been vomiting and feeling nauseous. I have had too many bad encounters with Farm Country from buying moldy cheese, to produce and products being already open this has to stop! | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Bile See Less
