Have you ever been food poisoned? If so, what did you eat?

And how long did it take to recover?

    I have, but the problem with food poisoning is that it can take from one hour to as long as ten days to affect you, so it's nearly impossible to know exactly what has caused it. When I was very sick recently, i talked with a friend who does the local restaurant inspections and told her what I had eaten that I thought had been the cause (from the grocery deli), and she explained that without a stool sample showing pathogens that can be matched to a specific food sample, there is no way they can act on such information, or even begin to narrow down what the culprit might have been.

    30 years ago, in Malaysia...probably from my iced milk tea. In bed for 3 days. Thought I was going to die, I really did. Never happened again.

    Ohh yes. Ate an extremely tasty smoked ham and cream cheese roll for lunch. A couple of hours later I felt somewhat perturbed so left work early. Just as I got off the bus, at the doorway of my favourite takeaway, the contents of my stomach returned with a vengeance. I was horrified but luckily they weren't open so I naffed off home. All was quiet until BANG! Both ends, together, forceful. Then again 35 minutes later. Call in the cavalry. Mum! Every 35 minutes it went on til gone 2am. Mum went home at midnight having made up some rehydration liquid for me to drink. Had to take two days off work because I could barely move.

    Mother went to the shop to waen them. The manager apologised and said if I went in with some proof of purchase he would give me the money back.

    Nope, I have never entered that shop again. A while later I heard they stopped selling food...

    yes..Shrimp dinner from The Outback. I've read restaurants often recycle their butter,so don't know if it was the shrimp or tainted butter. Did not have to go to the er,but i sure was sick.Started getting sick early the next morning. It took about 24 hours to recover thereabouts. I refuse to ever eat there again.
