Olive Garden Restaurant / food poisoning: stuffed mushrooms!!

1 Burlington, NC, United States Review updated:

Ate the stuffed mushroom appetizer, no drinks other than water and have been sick, dizzy, unable to eat, sleeping 18+ hours and vomiting when awake for 48 hrs after eating this appetizer at your restaurant 2 days ago.

Tried to reach the restaurant where I ate, but the only contact info is in the headquarters Orlando, FL office, where their office hours are brief and unavailable to warn about this poison tonite.

Saw doctor today and going to see another for more bloodwork tomorrow to get to the bottom of this. Calling attorney once we have the results back from the toxin testing.

Please be so careful eating anything other than pasta and non-meat sauce at Olive Garden. And DON'T drink the wines they push, push push. Go to your favorite home or grille beforehand and enjoy. Their wines are not that tasty and cost you a fortune. You'll easily drop $100+ for 4 folks if you buy their wine with dinner.

Never again.

    You are still having medical tests to determine the cause of your illness. I really think you jumped the gun in posting this. You should have waited till you had the conclusive medical evidence that the illness was caused by food from OG.

    unfortunately, have missed another 7 meals due to this 'appetizer'. Had 6 vials of blood taken yesterday to determine the culprit, and all were negative. My doc has advised food poisoning. What would you have posted?? LOL.

    Still vomiting ...

    But did your doctor specifically find the cause of food poisning to be from olive Garden?? if the medical report doesn't specifically say OG, then you are wrong to accuse them.

    What would I do? Ask Og to look at their mushroom supply. What would I not do? Accuse a business without conclusive evidence!

    i totally agree with Harpeville... Sounds like a snap judgement to post this. And out of curiousity, you made a point of saying that you only drank water, then ranted about the price and poor quality of the wine.. is that a side note or tasting the same night? something doesn't add up. And suggesting that you drink elsewhere beforehand kind of alludes to you drinking somewhere before, then only drinking water at OG... possible to have picked it up there?

    Did you intentionally name yourself this user name? Or did you forget how to spell gottschalks?... Did you use to work for this retail company before it went out of business or something? LOL
