My boyfriend got sick from eating pineapple today. He sometimes eats it and is okay. It's just the pineapple from Sam's. He get hot flashes and has a stomach ache. It has lasted all day. Any thoughts of what could cause this?
By the way, most of the fruit I've gotten from Sam's is ABOMINABLE!!!

Hmmmm.... I don't know.. could it have been a reaction to pesticides? I'm not sure how much they use on pineapples. It doesn't seem as if he is allergic, since he doesn't always have reactions.
I had an allergic reaction to a white/golden grapefruit. I'm not sure what it was precisely, we purchased it at Wildoats (it said it was organic and called it an oro blanco grapefruit --- which means white gold in spanish).
After I ate it, my face got really hot and turned red. I don't have any problems with ruby red grapefruit though... but I can tell you, I won't be eating one of the white grapefruits again!
I took a homeopathic for allergic reactions, and I started to feel better. My face stayed red for a while, but was basically back to normal by evening.

I used to be "allergic" to pineapple. When all my other food allergies (to mostly cooked food items) started appearing some raw foods appeared to be affecting me as well. I believe that my body was SO toxic and overloaded that it just couldn't handel one more thing and the symptoms happened as I ate the more pure foods (maybe instant detox?). After I cut the allergenic foods out plus switched to 100% raw I can now eat all the oranges, strawberries, pineapples, and tomatoes I want. Things I couldn't eat while on cooked because I got very itchy hives, swollen toung and throat, ect.
My other half has a pinapple allergy and it is because he does not have a particular enzyme necessary to break it down completely. He gets violently sick when he has eaten it ;) , with very bad stomach cramps.

Before I went on a 10 day 100% raw diet I was allergic to all kinds of fruits and things, even my favorite - Watermelon. Now I am allergic to known of them. I think we build up so much toxins in our system that are body begins to become sensitive due to all the bad in our system, after we detox some our body adjust back to normal. I would use the pineapple in caution and if he is not doing 100%, he may just want to go on a 10 day 100% raw diet to detox and hopefully conquer any food allergies. Even if he isn't allergic 10 days raw wouldn't kill him, LOL.

There is a lot of borium(spelling?) in pineapple that many people are allergic too, including me. Look to see if he got a sore on his mouth or even a tiny slit in the corner of his lips.

I used to be allergic to all citrus fruits, once I quit comsuming all dairy, all of my other supposed allergies went away, miraculously
but if Sams has horrible fruit, why buy there at all?
