Anyone else sick after eating at California Avenue restaurant Saturday night?

Original post made by Food Poisoning, Evergreen Park, on Jul 1, 2008

Just wondering if anyone else got food poisoning after eating out on California Avenue Saturday night. Some out of town relatives (who only had one meal in common with us) as well as everyone in my family had food poisoning symptoms starting early yesterday morning.

What restaurant, may I ask? I eat at places there frequently.

Yes, please do give the name and report it to the restaurant and the Board of Health. I was headed down that way for lunch today and would like to be safe! Hope you all feel better soon.

My husband and I had symptoms similar to food poisoning over the weekend. We had eaten completely different meals at different places for the previous couple of days. We had both been bothered by the bad air from the smoke during this time. In the end, we decided that it may have come from something in the air rather than something we ate.

I don't mean to be defensive but our family had definite food poisoning symptoms. Earlier in the week, all of California Avenue lost power during the entire dinner hour. All of the restaurants closed for the dinner hour. I am thinking that maybe we ate something that didn't stay at the proper temperature and was served later in the week. These restaurants lost enough profit when they lost their power and their income for one night which is why I didn't want to name the restaurant. Anyway, we are all starting to feel better now.

I wasn't on California Ave., but got food poisoning from a restaurant near El Camino and Charleston Saturday. How far did the outage go?
