Chef Boyardee

Meatballs tasted a little funky, but thought it was me, or they’ve changed recipe so won’t buy again. I knew better, but ate the can around 9 pm. Woke up with extreme gastric pain, vomiting and diarrhoea. The taste was of exactly what the meatballs tasted like,... See More but far, far worse. First time happy that less mb in can. Very bad-meat, extremely gross and I will never buy again. I’ve eaten this item for over 20-30 yrs, probably even longer and we usually keep a can in our cupboard for a night when working late, or too tired to cook. This staple is now done. Just purchased these two cans yesterday (Ravioli for my grandson and of course this deadly can of spaghetti & MB). Ravioli went straight to garbage can today. Clean up your act Chef Boyardee! Disgusting! This has gone on for over 16 hours now. Purchased here, expiry Nov 1, 2024 as per pic. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Gas See Less

This is the second or third time where as I'm in the middle of eating my bowl of ravioli I get intense stomach cramping, bent over, sweating profusely, and then all of a sudden I'm running to the toilet almost screaming in pain to then poop my brains out(very painfully I might add) | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Sweating, Cramps, Stomach Pain See Less

My partner had Mini Ravioli around 10pm and 8 hours later, he woke up with intense abdominal pain followed by nausea and diarrhea. Recurring symptoms every 2 hours. Did not expect such poisoning because its expiration date was Mar 2024 and the can never has been opened... See More and stored in cool cabinet. He is T1 Diabetes and his glucose level is out of control. We might have go to hospital later. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Other See Less
