Cross-contamination occurs when harmful bacteria and other microorganisms are transferred from one substance or surface to another. For example, when bacteria from the surface of raw meat, poultry, seafood, and raw vegetables are transmitted onto ready-to-eat foods like fresh produce, vegetable salad, or cooked food in general.

Cross Contamination

Suspected food poisoning. Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps
Suspected source: contaminated lettuce
Onset: 4 to 12 hours
Duration: 12 to 24 hours
Sick: 2 people | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps See Less

My son and I went to get dinner here, and a few hours into sleep, he woke up throwing up. Confusion onset, green in the face, loss of color in skin, ultimately resulting in puking, and then seeming back to norma with no other symptoms (that he... See More could articulate clearly to me, then again he's four)... And then back to bed. Unable to keep fluids down, this process will repeat for the next several hours, puking almost like clockwork, every 45 minutes. The next day he was fine towards the early afternoon, just about the time that my symptoms started to kick in. This is a Bear family owned franchise at here, it looks like the evening manager or shift leader was under stress and under staffed (seeing as that order wasnt during even a rush period, only one car ahead of me in the drive-thru, nobody in the front room ordering, and it probably took 35 minutes to get my small fries and three value sandwiches that were bundled items). It seems like this rather new shift leader or evening manager, who is incredibly nice and hard-working, is often having to run the entire back of the kitchen, while helping with one of the other windows and all of the new employees are not properly trained (I don't know the man personally, but I do work for doordash and I frequently am in that location, as I live right across the street from it. This seems to be the common theme with every new manager or shift leader or assistant manager that works there. Then again it's there so, you kind of get what you get). Was HOPING cross contamination wasn't the issue, but all signs point to it. My girlfriend started to have the same symptoms, exhibiting them about the time mine started. I brought her food from there as well, and we all shared the same orders. I'm just now kind of getting over it though (Tuesday the 28th), however my stomach is still in quite some pain from all the heaving. We ordered early evening, approximately Saturday Feb 25, 2023 for reference. Again, my son's symptoms started approximately 3/4 hours after ingesting, and our symptoms began roughly 20 hours after ingesting (give or take). | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Confusion, Stomach Pain See Less

Saturday February 12 I stopped at here. I wait over 20 minutes for my food. I stood to the side of the counter and I could see in the kitchen. I saw one cook pass the other cook raw beef patties. He placed them on the grill.... See More The cook that passed the raw beef patties, then placed raw chicken wings in the fryer basket. He didn’t change his gloves. Also, neither cook changed their gloves and they prepared the ready to eat food with those contaminated gloves.
I ate there after 3 pm ghat day. I got back to my home in SC between 8:30 and 9 pm that night. Suddenly, abdominal pain struck me and I had to dash to the toilet! I was up ALL night with explosive diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and I became incontinent. I had defecated in bed 3 times and had to change sheets. I also had to put a diaper on. I am at the emergency room now getting iv fluids and medicine. I was diagnosed with food poisoning.
I notified the manager prior to coming to er about the cook’s cross contamination. I called the health department too! | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain

Violently ill for hours after eating here. Staff was so rude so I’m sure they don’t care about cross contamination. I will never eat here again. Colonoscopy prep was more pleasant. Do not go here. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

My son in law and I got diarrhea and more after eating at here possibly from cross contamination. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Something else See Less

October 23, 2022

Seattle & King County Public Health announced that they are investigating an outbreak of salmonellosis (caused by Salmonella bacteria) associated with Chili's South Indian Cuisine located at 4220 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105. Since October 6, 2022, 3 people from 2 separate meal parties reported becoming ill after consuming food from this restaurant on September 17, 2022 and September 23, 2022. No hospitalizations or death are reported at this time. Public Health has not yet identified how Salmonella was spread within the restaurant. The investigation is ongoing.

Environmental Health Investigators visited the restaurant on October 19, 2022. They identified sanitizing issues, potential cross-contamination, inadequate hand washing, and lack of proper access to handwashing stations. Corrective actions were taken during the inspection. Environmental Health Investigators will revisit the facility within 2 weeks to ensure proper compliance with food handling practices. No ill employees were identified at the time of inspection.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

Got severe abdominal pains and was violently throwing up a few hours after eating here. I got the lobster sandwich. It tasted good, but was probably undercooked or otherwise contaminated. It's the only food I had that my partner did not eat and he didn't get sick. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain See Less

Bought a set of pre-made assorted korean pancakes from there 09/19/2021. The next day on 09/20/2021 I decided to make one half of the pack of pre-made assorted korean pancakes with my son. I quartered each pancake so it’s easier for my son to eat. I took... See More the first bite of the chive pancake and I felt a very hard substance within the first chew. I took the substance out of my mouth thinking maybe it was a shell from a piece of shellfish or something. To my dismay, it was a pretty decently sized piece of hard grey/silver plastic. Had a sharp edge on one side too. I took a picture of the piece of plastic immediately and sent it to my husband. He called the place from where we purchased it quickly and they replied; “Well what do you want us to do about it?” Now, this isn’t the first incident we’ve (specifically me) had with this particular location when it came to their pre-made food. The last time I ate their stir-fried tofu and got food poisoning and their reply was pretty much the same and nothing was really done about it. I doubt anything will be done about this incident either, they just seem to not really care. Lessened learned again, let’s not buy pre-made food from there, at the very least this location. Just putting this out there for others that shop at this h mart location. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

I ordered an Italian burger with onion rings and my friend ordered a Pork tenderloin with onion rings for dinner. The food all tasted great, but around 1am we both woke up with stomach cramps and diarrhea. Perhaps some cross-contamination in the kitchen or bad onions? | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

I ate a salad and right near the end of it, I tasted something bad. The taste stayed in my mouth since 8pm(09/01/2021)- till (09/02/2021)current time 1pm.. I really do not know what to do I went back up there to speak to them but nothing was... See More confirmed other than the salad is premade now. I never experienced this before. I spoke to a cook and he said it might to cross-contamination. The person that made the salad did not change gloves while touching raw chicken. I work here and have a doctors appointment later to confirm. I'm going to get my receipt. This was not right! | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Other See Less
