It was my first time going to IHOP too. also, waited like another half hour afterward to try the... See More chicken and waffles. It was 16 bucks for a waffle and 4 small chicken strips. Very unsatisfied and also, we know we got Salmonella poisoning here because everyone that went got sick.

Also pretty bad fever. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Weakness, Fatigue, Stomach Pain See Less

Seattle & King County Public Health announced that three individuals fell ill due to a Salmonella outbreak linked to the IHOP restaurant located at 14747 NE 20th St, Bellevue, WA. The illnesses occurred between October 23 and December 23, 2023, and two people required hospitalization. No deaths... See More were reported. This investigation is now completed.

All three individuals ate a variety of breakfast foods at the Bellevue IHOP, but no specific food item has been identified as the source of the outbreak. Public Health conducted interviews with the sick individuals to identify common exposures and all three had eaten at the Bellevue IHOP. The victims, ranging in age from 20 to 70, reported symptoms consistent with salmonellosis, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, bloody stool, and fever. No ill employees were identified at the restaurant.

On January 11, 2024, Environmental Health Investigators requested source information and food receipts from the restaurant. A visit to the restaurant was conducted on January 16, 2024, where investigators reviewed the restaurant's food preparation processes. No contributing factors to the outbreak were identified. The restaurant has since conducted a thorough deep cleaning and reinforced food safety training with staff.

Laboratory testing confirmed all three cases as Salmonella infections. Further testing revealed that all three cases were infected with the same strain of Salmonella, as determined by genetic fingerprinting (whole genome sequencing or WGS) at the Washington State Public Health Laboratory.

If you or a loved one 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.

01/27/2024 I got food poisoning from this ihop. I threw up after coming home. I had the pancakes and an omelette. My experience was terrible as there were many people working, but why did it take so long to get my food. The food was cold as... See More well and the person who lead me to a booth had an attitude before coming. My other symptoms included diarrhea, nausea, and stomach pain/cramps. I’m not eating from ihop ever again. I would say Dennis is better and they have even less people working and my food always comes out hot and it taste better than ihop’s bland food. I knew I shouldn’t have tried this new ihop, it was just a bit ghetto. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps, Stomach Pain See Less
