Location: Whole Foods Market, Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL, USA
Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Vomiting
Details: Chicken from hot buffet, On Dec 6, 2017 I lunched there with Chicken around noon. Close to 2:30 PM, I had urgent need to vomit and did that 2 other times during the following 2 hours. Diarrhea in the meantime. First time in 20 years I had to vomit. I recuperated, but 2 days after I had severe skin eruptions on the shoulders and neck. I saw a doctor who gave me pills to fight allergy. Not sufficient, I saw another one who sent me to a dermatologist. Biopsie on a shoulder leading to a dermatitis like eczema. Patch test followed with no positive results. I started a diet with no dairy products, after no eggs, after no cabbage etc. for 4 weeks. No improvements. I said that to my brother in law in Canada being a physician, he questioned me about a possible virale infection prior to my skin problem. His diagnosis was prompt: urticaire following a viral infection following bad food ingested. I paid $1300. in local consultations without the right Dx. I do not have the money and the time to sue Whole Food, but at least I can post: Stay away from Whole Food buffet!
Doctor Visit: Yes
Diagnosis: Urticaire post viral infection
