We have been buying food from Family Dollar in our neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. Everything that we eat from there has a weird chemical taste to it. We've eaten cereal, tortilla, chips, flour. Everything has a weird flavor to the point that we have to throw the … See More
food out. A couple of days ago, my husband bought some tortilla from another Family Dollar that's not in our neighborhood thinking it was our neighborhood store that had the weird tasting food. Unfortunately, my daughter ate some and noticed the weird taste. We say that it tastes like Family Dollar and sure enough it did. Her stomach started hurting after that. Thank God she stopped eating it. Does anyone else food from Family Dollar have a weird chemical taste to it?  | Symptoms: Stomach Pain
