Shrimp Scampi Expiration 11/04/08 Purchased June 07
Posted by on
SANTA MARIA, CALIFORNIA -- Grandma bought the Shrimp @ Von's and went straight home and cooked in the fry pan according to your instructions. Got food poisoning within the hour. Reported it to Von's and will be sending a copy of the front/back of package to the company since no phone # was listed to make anyone aware if similar problem. Nothing else was added to the menu that would have caused this. She started throwing up within the hour of eating. We've kept the rest of the contents in the freezer.

Food Poisoning - reaction basically throwing up and diarrehea and chills.

You need to do some research. Food poisoning does not act that fast. If something was bad enough to cause food poisoning that fast, your nose would have you vomiting before you got close enough to eat any of it. The bacteria that cause food poisoning take about 72 hours to incubate. therefor, if you have food poisoning, look at what you ate 2-3 days ago, not what you ate an hour ago. Our daughter refuses to eat at Taco Bell, cause she got sick within an hour of eating at one. She won't believe it can be anything but Taco Bell, even when a doctor explained how food poisoning works to her. I hope she is better, but I doubt if the scampi is what made her sick.

I don't know why people insist on posting reviews here that say things like, "according to your instructions". I figure this OP either thinks that M3C owns Rich-SeaPak, or this is a letter/email to Von's that he/she just copy-and-pasted here.

starlord pretty much covered it. I have a friend who ate at a local BBQ place and got really, really ill almost immediately after.
Food poisoning? No. Of course, that was the first thought, but it wasn't that.
It was stomach flu.
Just a coincidence and really bad timing.
Unless you have medical proof that it was food poisoning, it's just conjecture.

Starlord I'm not sure I agree with your blanket 72 hour incubation for all microbes. Staphylococcus for example can cause illness in as little as an hour AND oh BTW shrimp is a valid host. Theoretically this could be a case of food poisoning caused by tainted shrimp.

Fishhead I hope your grandmother is doing good. Food poisoning is nasty especially for the elderly. Good luck!

I think I have to agree with Stew here because Clinically, the most important genus of the Micrococcaceae family is Staphylococcus. The Staphylococcus genus is classified into two major groups: aureus and non-aureus. S. aureus is a leading cause of soft tissue infections, as well as toxic shock syndrome (TSS) and scalded skin syndrome. It can be distinguished from other species of Staph by a positive result in a coagulase test(all other species are negative).

Fishhead I too hope your grandmother is doing well!

Wow Lidman you paid better attention in micro-biology than I did. Thanks for the validation, I'm touched.

Heaven17, we must get the funk! LOL

Stew; glad I could reach out and touch you this morning and I was only following you lead man!

Flu - reaction basically throwing up and diarrehea (sic) and chills.

Maybe someone can start a class action lawsuit?

Skye on 06/28/2007:
24 to 48 hours for food poisoning to kick in.

You must have ingested something earlier, that made you so sick.

Important to stay hydrated. Drink Pedialyte. It's for kids, but I drink it as an adult whenever I get food poisoning, and trust me, I have had my share. It really helps.

"...whenever I get food poisoning, and trust me, I have had my share."

Dang, Skye. What you been eatin'?
Skye on 06/28/2007:
I had bad yogurt, bad eggs in my time. I would rather be dead than get food poisoning again.

In fact, I did have to die to get better.
runaway on 06/28/2007:
Without testing, you can't be sure that this food caused it, unless you ate nothing else for the last three-four days.
CrazyRedHead on 06/29/2007:
Did you take some of the food with you to the emergency room and also the health dept. You will need some documentation from a Dr to get any results from the company. There are a lot of things that can cause you to get sick within the hour of eating anything and just to start yelling food poisoning is jumping the gun. If your symptoms are as bad as you say, you need to get to a doctor, people have died from the symptoms that you have described.

Fly in our food
Posted on
HESPERIA, CALIFORNIA -- We purchased a pack of stuffed Pizza dippers and upon opening we found a fly packed INSIDE the frozen package. We e-mailed the company along with photos and got no reply.

To help keep me as a potential future customer, I would like the following:

We would be happy with an acknowledgement from the company. A letter of apology would be nice.

At the very least I would like a response from your company regarding this incident. Thank you for your time.
Company Response 5/3/2002:
Unfortunatley, we had not received the original contact from Mr. Smith that he mentioned in his letter. A response was sent immediately to Mr. Smith via his e-mail address requesting additional information on the product. We take any incident such as this very seriously and our manufacturing and quality assurance associates have been notified about Mr. Smith's experience.

Mr. Smith has been sent coupons for free packages of our Farm Rich products as well as a business reply envelope. We hope that he still has the package so that we can gain additional information concerning which product he purchased and the production date of that package.
