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 fianc�e 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.
