Mellow mushroom

Ate the pepperoni pizza and about 2-3 hours later, i got nauseas and a feeling over fatigue/tiredness. My stomach is still gurgling. I could not find any health inspections on the VA Fairfax health department website in the past year. Unacceptable. Does the govt even care about...

I’m guessing it’s from mellow mushroom, but I’m not sure if it was the salad or the pizza that gave me diarrhea. This was weird because I’ve had mellow mushroom before catered to us and never had issues. HOWEVER, this time I think I might have been... See More good poisoned. But DEFINITELY one of these two mentioned. Mellow mushroom food was catered to us today for lunch in an event, but after eating it, my stomach got gurgly for a few hours. No big deal. HOWEVER, I’m convinced I got food poisoning when I noticed I got stomach cramps since 9:30 PM and took a dump a couple times, and each dump was liquid diarrhea. BUT, the second dump I had was liquid reddish diarrhea at 11 PM. SO, after google searching this, I’m convinced mellow mushroom food poisoned me!!! | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

I ordered a gluten free pizza with vegan cheese- chicken, artichokes, onions and had severe stomach cramping. Landed in ER after 8 hours of horrible cycles of stomach pain with intense nausea. | Symptoms: Nausea, Stomach Pain, Cramps See Less

Have some idea what might be the true cause. Gluten-free pizza crust and bread type products almost always contain xanthan gum which causes some people severe stomach distress and diarrhea. Also some gluten-free stuff has inulin which is another ingredient that causes the same issue. It's possible the vegan cheese might use these ingredients too. Some people are sensitive to it. I had to give up all gluten-free products myself and go back to regular wheat.

I’ve had what appeared to be food poisoning twice after eating at Mellow Mushroom. The first time it was after eating a sandwich, and the second time was after eating pizza. Both times I had nausea, vomiting and diarrhea about 8-10 hours after eating. Haven’t been back since. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

I ate it Thursday night and all Friday and all today has been horrendous. I woke up 6 times just to use the restroom. I ordered a create your own with mushroom trio, tempeh, onion and spinach woth an olive oil base. Check your temperatures on food in BOH. I have a feeling it was the mushrooms. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

I had pizza from here The pizza and service was good but today (the day after eating it) I have had really bad diarrhea and nausea and other symptoms so it’s extremely possible that the pizza there has ingredients that may cause food poisoning or other food... See More related illnesses. My parents also had pizza there and have had diarrhea. My sister is the only one who hasn’t had diarrhea and she’s the only who didn’t eat pizza. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

Hi, Thanks for your comment. It is common to get food poisoning from Pizza. Frozen pizza has been linked to E. coli and restaurant pizza contains high-risk ingredients that can cause food poisoning if mishandled. The main culprit is often raw eggs in undercooked dough, but toppings like meat and cheese can contain Listeria.

After eating the ribeye pie on a gluten free crust, both my husband and I have had nausea and explosive diarrhea. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

We ordered a pizza and a sandwich, both with chicken on it. The sandwich also included mushrooms. Started feeling sick later that evening. I had chills, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness. My girlfriend had symptoms also, but not as severe. I started feeling better after a day and a... See More half and decided to eat the leftovers. This time I ate the chicken sandwich. 2 hours after eating it, I was sick all over again. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Dizziness, Chills See Less
