Fried chicken can give you food poisoning. Diarrhea and nausea are the most commonly reported symptoms of Zaxby's food poisoning. Between 2009 and 2015, chicken was the most responsible for outbreaks. It caused 3,114 outbreak-related illnesses or 12% of all food poisoning cases.

Severe diarrhea started approximately 12 hours after eating garden salad with ranch dressing | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

I ordered the fried Cobb salad and I woke up that night to severe stomach pain, diarrhea headache, and chills. I reported them to DHEC. I will never in my life eat here again. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Headache, Chills, Stomach Pain See Less

On 03/06/2023 I ordered 2 of the kiddie fingers. I ate all the fries and 2 of the chicken fingers in one sitting. The next morning 03/07/2023 around 3am I finished the remaining 2 chicken fingers. About 4 hours later, I felt nauseous. When I woke up... See More later that morning i had a horrible feeling in my stomach and chills all over my body even though my partner said it was hot in here. I went the entire day feeling like crap. I slept most of the day away. The following morning, 03/08/2023, I kept getting startled out of my sleep as my chest pains are really bad right now. I was up for hours and my sleep quality was poor do to me not feeling well. During this time, I had diarrhea which sounded like I was pissing out of my bum (sorry you had to read this). Initially, I assumed this was the flu until I reached out to a friend that had their food with me at another location in Bartow,fl. She stated she had abnormal diarrhea and her 2 small children were gassy. Then I found that food poisoning can mimic flu symptoms. This is the absolute worst. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Chills, Gas, Chest Pain See Less

March 6, 2023 around 3:56 pm I ordered a big zack snack from zaxbys with a lemonade . I have a styrafoam cup with what seems to be either mold or another form of bacteria at the bottom of the cup. I did not notice anything while... See More finishing the ice inside of the cup. At first I thought the bacteria was on the outside of it until I dumped the liquid out only to find more bacteria. See Less

Ordered a big zax snack. Chicken was very well over cooked so I think it was cross contamination. My chicken sandwich had no chicken inside, as the employees seemed under the influence so I think there was a severe lack of care in the kitchen. Had fries,... See More 1 ranch dipping sauce and a sweet tea. Felt nausea about 5 minutes after but shook it off. Next morning extreme nausea feeling and diarrhea | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less
