Pret a Manger

On the 5th, 6th and 7th of February 2023 I got 1 hot drink each day. A matcha latte, a flat white and a chai latte. After each drink, I experienced stomach pains for a short period of time- around 10 minutes. The reason I kept going... See More back there is because I tried to tell myself there could be another cause to my pains, however, now that I have tasted it 3 times, I can confidently say that they serve drinks that will make you feel sick. I wish I could get a refund on my wasted membership payment. | Symptoms: Stomach Pain See Less

I had an Italian prosciutto baguette and had severe diarrhoea about 2 hours later and then 4 hours later was violently sick. I love them but don’t think it could’ve been anything else as I hadn’t eaten for 20 hours and went from feeling fine to absolute hell. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

I had the dark chocolate cookie, tasting really old and funky. Only six hours later, I felt stomach ache, nausea, and diarrhoea. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Stomach Pain See Less

This afternoon, A halloumi and falafel wrap from here, Not at the moment | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

I never got sick because I left the store after seeing the refrigerator temp was 53 degrees. I also was about to eat a tuna sandwich and the mayo was rancid and the tuna was bad and so I threw it away. I have read some reviews that state a lot of people have gotten sick. See Less

I purchased a large meal for myself and my family of 4 before our train departed. By that evening we each fell violently sick constantly vomiting and having diarrhea. as well as feeling nauseous and unable to move. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

I have only eaten food from here today and have the Deliveroo receipt to prove this. I ate the chocolate croissant for breakfast and the chicken and avocado sandwich for lunch at 2pm.
By 4:30 I almost passed out and was feverish. I was nauseous and achey... See More and had diarrhoea on and off for hours until 9pm when I was violently sick. I have spoken to 111 as I felt so ill | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever See Less

29 November 2022, Chicken salad On the Tuesday I ate a smoked salmon sandwich from here at 12.30pm. Then nothing till the chicken salad at 6,30pm. I hardly ate it. The chicken was rubbery the mayonnaise congealed. It was badly prepared with large rough dark wet leaves.... See More I did not eat the tomatoes or use the dressing that came with it. I felt nauseous within half an hour of eating the very small amount I had gripe bloat stomaco pain reflux. I felt really ill. at 2.30am I vomited. This is the first time in many years on fact since I was poisoned by an oyster. Then two hours later I vomitted again. I then had diarrhoea. The following day I was weak and had a terrible headache. . I also had a temperature of 38.1°. Which lasted till the following day. It is more than a week later and I still feel unlike eating much and have little appetite. I have to say this has been a terrible experience. The incident was reported to them the following day. On the Wednesday. The manager said they had sent a salad maker home the day before because they were ill the manager thought there might have been some cross contamination as I understand. My partner gave his mobile no. Then on Friday he returned and reported again. We have not heard anything back from here. In my opinion this is negligent. In fact it is a really poor response to their poor standards of hygene whether this came from the salad maker or from either the chicken salad. Itseld. For many years I have regularly bought salads and sandwiches from here. This is the first time I have had a problem. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Fever, Vomiting, Acid reflux, Headache, Weakness, Bloating, Loss of Appetite See Less
