Dried persimmons caused my food poisoning.

I got this healthy choice frozen meal at that store, and it contained chicken, rice, bell peppers and pineapples. When I got home I saw there was a puncture in it and thought I did it when putting the groceries in the stroller so I thought I should eat it then. Hours later I found I was mistaken and I had food poisoning. Moral of the story, trust your instincts and throw stuff away, don't eat it.

I ate a fast food salad on a Friday which caused my food poisoning. I started getting stomach cramps about 2 or 3 hour later. I have been sick ever since, it's Monday. I have weakness, headache, cramps, diarrhea, and feel just horrible.

I work at Burger King and usually don't eat breakfast before I go to work. I worked 11 to 4 that day and after work I ordered some food like I have done a few times before. Everything tasted fine until about 2 hours later when my stomach started hurting. I couldn't eat supper and went to bed about 10:30 still with a stomach ache. I woke at 3 am with vomiting, then again at 4, and 6, being able to keep nothing down including water. I called in to work the next day with the manager being upset with me, then got a headache about 2 hours later. Around 11:30 I finally started to eat some crackers and drink water without throwing it back up.

On Friday my fiancée and I ordered pizza for delivery, the evening before our bridal shower. We ate it at 10 p.m. and both woke at 3 a.m. and proceeded to vomit and have diarrhea until Sunday morning around 9.

I ate pre-packed fruit salad from a nationwide pharmacy chain that also sells food.
