I ate Chef Boyardee on Friday, January 28 for lunch possibly around 2pm. Shortly after my stomach started hurting and I felt blotted. About 4:30pm I started throwing up violently and continue to get sick the whole night. I do not remember where I purchased the can. Could have been Walmart or WinCo. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Bloating, Stomach Pain See Less

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

Chef Boyardee mini ravioli best by oct252024, Sick in stomach product had strange taste. Saved half the bowl. | Symptoms: Nausea See Less

I eat chef boyardee a lot because I’m a college kid with college money. The last couple bowls of it I had caused a lot of bloating and gas, with slight nausea. I’m Not sure what could cause it, but it’s mildy concerning. I will say the... See More last bowl I had was 1/13/23, but there have been others before that. | Symptoms: Nausea, Bloating, Gas See Less

My wife and I both consumed CB ravioli from a can dated best by 7/2024. She only ate 2 bites, I had the balance. We both mentioned to each other that the taste was different, being that we both had occasionally eaten CB products our whole lives.... See More It had what seemed to be like a spicy chili taste to it, but unfortunately didn't think much of it. Within around15 minutes of finishing we were both in the bathroom for almost an hour. This has continued on a more mild scale for the last 3 days. Reported to CB the next day and they said they would record the incident and will send coupons. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less
