Wawa, Jefferson Davis Highway, Chester, VA, United States
Location: Wawa, Jefferson Davis Highway, Chester, VA, United States
Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Nausea Vomiting
Details: carrots & celery w peanut butter, This event occurred on Monday 12/04/2017; I am just reporting it now because I only just now discovered this website. On the day of occurrence, around 5:30 PM, I purchased and consumed a package of carrots and celery with peanut butter dip from this retailer. This is an item I have consumed many times in the past, but always from other Wawa outlets. This item was also the only fresh food I purchased that entire day; everything else was either pre-packaged (a protein bar From the same retailer) or brought from home using the same ingredients and means of preparation, storage, and transport as usual. Without 2 hours of consuming the carrot/celery/peanut butter package, I started experiencing symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and feeling feverish in my body (chills, weakness). I vomited profusely, starting with the most recent thing eaten (the bright orange told me, “yep, there are the carrots I ate!”) and proceeding down to older, more watery remains. This is the only time I can recall where I didn’t immediately feel better after vomiting; instead, my stomach felt sore/raw for the next 48-36 hours, even after all the other symptoms had subsided. The nausea, vomiting, and feverish feelings ceased in 24-48 hours. I didn’t report this incident to Wawa because I doubted whether they’d take it seriously, possibly attributing my symptoms to some other cause (eg, illness) or culprit (eg, my own food). However, I intend to never consume fresh food from that Wawa again in the future.
