WELL I WENT TO HAVE FOOD THEIR ON MOTHERS DAY, WITH FAMILY. and i had eggs bacon, coffee, sunflower seeds omelett with mozzarrella cheese, jalapeno peppers, ham and bacon. everyone else at the table didnt. long story short, i got food poisioning from that mothers day buffet. and the way i found out i got food poisioning was i had to go see the dr. cause my stomach was cramping really bad, diarrhea really bad couldnt eat or drink anything. so dr. put me on antibiotic called ciprofloxacin and diphenoxylate. so i call them to tell them this and they are like they dont care, they served 1900 ppl and im the only 1 who got sick. i told her that you know of cause they probably were bashful or shy to call and tell you they got sick or maybe they thought it was the stomach flu like i did, till i went to see the dr, and told me it was food poisioning. i waist that they would get investegated, on seeing if they are following room tempartures and guidelines on how well they are checking their food for temp accuracy. i feel that if they dont care about there customers they should be closed down. who can i call to get food inspectors out their to follow up on them on food accuracy? i want justice, its not right that i had to suffer food poisioning because they neglected to check their food tempratures.

    1. You said you had like 8 different foods, a lot of protein input, cheese, along with spicy peppers, and especially including coffee, that's like a recipe for disaster, you can get violent diarrhea just from those foods and it not being a pathogen reason, it just being you stuffing your face too god dang full of so many different foods that each in their own right can cause sickening craps because your body doesn't eat those foods on a daily basis, so when you cram them all in for one meal, yeah your body isnt going to be too happy with you!
    2. Food poisoning doesn't always happen right away. There's a potential that pathogens you ate from food a week previous can be dormant that long and then cause food poisoning so you cannot pinpoint it to one specific meal. Before you go trying to shut down an establishment, realize that there is the possibility that something YOU cooked previously may have caused it! Unless you threw up that meal from your body rejecting it, then there's no sure way to say that the meal is what caused your food poisoning.
    3. There's also a possibility that you may not have gotten food poisoning from the food. A sick person who sneezed into their hand may have touched the door handle you grabbed to enter the building, and you may have touched your mouth and transferred that pathogen to yourself.
    4. GET OVER IT! While food safety is important, if you cannot prove that it was Old Country Buffet's fault, then you cannot place blame on them. End of story. A complaint site like this is for legitimate complaints, not pissed off irrational rants.
