Swallowed some of weird gross brown stuff in Arizona Iced Tea Canned drink

07/27 update: I still have it and the other unopened one I bought with it. I'll never drink one again. It's beyond disgusting. It's brown, soft and looks like either brown spit or diluted... See More plastic. It bothers me bc I swallowed some. I still have that too. See Less

I’ve noticed it since April 2022, It started after eating Lucky Charms cereal I’ve purchased both off brand & name brand Lucky Charms from Dollar General in Rocky Mount, Family Dollar in Rocky Mount, Walmart Supercenter in Hampton, VA & Dollar General in Towson, MD. Basically, everywhere... See More I’ve traveled since April 2022, I’ve purchased some variety of the cereal. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting See Less

I've gotten sick a couple times now from Dollar General foods - or at least right after eating dollar General foods ... I won't say where but on the west coast ... Once after frozen broccoli and once after summer sausage that just didn't smell or taste right. I think they may let frozen foods sit and thaw out then re-freeze them - you can tell by the taste, and that affects the expiration dates.

I don't eat the food there and I definitely wont now. Expired ice cream almost made me feel like I was on my death bed. Will still buy from here (for non-food related items) but always check the expiration dates on everything. I once went in there and I saw a frozen mouse in the back of the freezer. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

I purchased a box of Lucky Charms at here last week. On Monday morning I ate a large bowl and within about two hours was feeling queasy, then developed sharp pains in stomach and started diarrhea and vomiting. Was violently sick for 12-14 hours before symptoms began... See More to subside.
