food poisoned and almonds??
i had the worst attack of food poisoning this week, it was about an hour after eating some almonds i had in the fridge. they weren't the freshest, but the first few handfuls tasted great (i even commented to my husband how great they were!!) and then i had a handful that tasted bitter...i thought it wasn't a big deal and had another handful. well, about 1/2 and hour later i had stomach pain, another half an hour later i felt the sickness coming on and well.....i spent the next 24 hours in the bathroom sick as a dog!
i know we have to be careful about raw nuts, these were from an open bin at wild oats. i am thinking i will stay with packaged raw nuts from trader joes. my question is does anyone know for sure when nuts have gone bad? i know a foul smell and taste would be obvious, but these really werent that bad. also, has anyone had similar problems with nuts? i am pretty sure it was the nuts that did it, it was so immediate.
oh yeah, these were unsoaked raw nuts, i was just snacking on them. had been in the fridge about a month i think!
Food poisining from almonds again
I just had the raw almonds left over that I bought from Costco several months ago. They were sitting in my fridge, and I am now experiencing food poisiining. I feel so sick! I know it is the almonds, because last week, I felt the same way after eating a few, but did not know it as them. Too bad it took me almost 40 minutes to drive home feeling like this!!
After just reading about the Kirkland brand recall due to Salmonella, I feel like I am unsure where to turn to buy my raw almonds now!
In the meantime, I am going to try to just get this out of my system.
*holding head over the toilet* :(
There has got to b a better way!
