To Whom It May Concern:
My husband and I purchased some of your shrimp at the closest location to my home… 351 Logan Lane Baden, PA 15005. We made the first batch and I got so sick that I spent November 11th through November 15th in my local hospital. I had severe stomach cramping, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. The attending ER doctor felt that I needed to be admitted. After all of the testing that was done, the doctors were baffled as to what was wrong with me…. Stomach cramping, diarrhea, vomiting, and just a complete sense of nausea. It was no wonder why one of the Head Gastroenterologists said that since all of the tests came back inconclusive, he said that it was a virus. Commonly misdiagnosed with food poisoning.
Gee, I wonder who is going to be picking up the “tab” of that stay at my local “Club Med”. Lord knows, I needed a vacation, but I was hoping I would be sitting back at the beach in FL, not hitting my nurse call button on my adjustable bed in a shared room. And having my family in an uproar about my inconclusive “condition”. I am highly upset about this and I am wondering what steps to take next.
Being released from the hospital AND not correlating my symptoms with food poisoning we had another package of your shrimp in the freezer. On November 24th my husband and I decided to make it…low and behold, guess who was back in the bathroom up all night vomiting into a trash bin beside her bed…Yup, it was me…. Needless to say, now I know what all the common symptoms of food poisoning are.
I have a package of Flounder that I was going to make, but I am going to return that package and I really hope that the manager does not give me any problems…. I would hate to have to draw the media into this mishap.
I hope that this problem gets rectified. I have seen some of the same complaints about ALDI’s food on some websites and I have decided to stop shopping at ALDI completely. As well as staging a complete boycott. I hope to hear from you soon, or once the medical bills start to roll in, you will be hearing from my lawyers.
I had a horrible experience and I literally went through my cupboards and fridge and got rid of everything from ALDI and I checked and double checked dates for all of my other foods.
I hope that no one else has an experience like I did. It sucked.
