7 layer burrito poisoning

Ate a few Taco Bell 7 layer burritos and paid the price A day and a half sitting on the porcelain throne and a terrible stomach ache. It is always funnier when itís not happening to you. I did manage a 37 mile ride at first I felt horrible but at about mile 20 I think the poison got metabolized. Good thing I ride in the boondocks if I had to make an emergency adjustment. Share some of your food poisoning stories for the fun of it. Iím sure there are some interesting tales to be told.

I had Taco Bell a year or so ago, first time since high school. It was terrible. I'd rather eat those twofer a buck mystery tacos at Jack in the Box. They're greasy, probably all lard and beans with soymeat textured stuff. But so tasty, especially with cheap beer.

Absolutely pointless because there's a good homestyle traditional Mexican food cocina and store across the street from me with really tasty and reasonably priced food. My Spanish is still kindergarten level but they're very patient with me trying to order food.

And I don't eat beans anymore, even though I like the flavor. Okay, once in awhile I might have a tablespoon or two of charro beans. But I discovered a couple of years ago when I tried a vegan diet for a few months that I cannot digest legumes, not enough to make it the main source of protein. That experience was horrible. I'm back to mostly meat and doing much better.

I thought they discontinued the 7-layer burrito a few months ago. No wonder it gave you the runs!

About the only thing I can eat at Taco Bell anymore are their crunchy tacos. Everything else is glop. I had a recent experience of their glop thanks to my 21 year old daughter talking me into going there and I said "I'll have what she's having".

I haven't been poisoned by Taco Bell yet. The worst case of food poisoning I had was nearly two decades ago. I used to use washable tupperware sandwich containers for taking lunch with me on the job. One day I had my usual chicken sandwiches and threw the containers into the dish washer. Several days later I used those containers again, but forgot that I never turned on the dish washer.

Geez. I was down hard for three whole days with something real bad after that. I definitely had a day of "This is it, I'm not gonna make it unless I call an ambulance.". I took my chances by not making the call and pulled through.

I went back to disposable sandwich bags after that.

I posted a thread about my most recent terrible poisoning incident. Ate at a place called Jollibee and was seriously ill for three weeks, nearly a month. Lost 30#, of which I have only recovered 10 since late August. My guts actually haven't been the same since. My saving grace for the whole incident was that I never was throwing up and able to keep eating and drinking lots of water. My doc didn't want to do anything so long as that was the case and just let it run it's course. I have not been that (stomach) sick in my whole life and hope to never have it again. There was a two week period that I am fairly sure I was on the curtains edge of death, and felt it. If I had started talking to dead relatives it would not have been surprising at that point....

I drank a quart of keifer once, and the healing crisis kept me on the throne for a day until my gut biome got stabilised again.

7 layer burrito discontinued so I guess it was the other burrito. After hearing of all these other cases mine was very mild.. I remember Juan Foote’s food poisoning thread. I’m avoiding The Bell from now on.

No sense of adventure, So disappointing.

Here's my latest foray into food fueled jet propulsion: Made chili last night with lots of pepper flakes and cayenne, a nice deep heat that passed the mouth leaving no pain just great flavor. I served it with red beans and brown rice. Lift off occurred about an hour ago. WOW! About an 18 hour travel time to the launchpad and Mars bound.

About fifteen years ago at lunch on New Yearís Eve, I ate a Daveís insanity sauce habanero burger at a pretty fancy restaurant in Scottsdale. This was before all the spicy fast food burgers got popular and it was really off the chart. They served it with a pint of milk, which I should have had before, not after. I could feel every inch that it traveled until it came back out again. Had to grin through the party and was up until three or four.

Fast Food is Slow Death. But after a full day of fishing the surf and facing the 3 hour drive back home and being broke and hungry. I will take a few minutes away from my life to get that cheap greasy bag of death. Eat it on my tailgate so my fishing equipment won’t get stolen then back on the road after downing a jumbo Monster energy drink.

Well, yes, now that you mention it; but the folks behind me in the checkout line at the grocery store, not so much.

In graduate school I had a friend from Mexico City who was incredulous that they opened up a Taco Bell in Mexico City.

That's okay... they finally opened them in Thailand... without beans. (I think they have since corrected same, but this was all well after I had to move back to the U.S. so I didn't follow it that closely.)

I'm sad they discontinued the 7-layer, though. That was one of my vegetarian go-to staples. I've not been to Taco Bell in a while, though. I like it, but I'm flabbergasted at how restaurant food prices have skyrocketed in the U.S., and I finally realized I'm not going to pay the same amount to get fast food that I could spend at an actual sit-down restaurant (then again, the sit-down restaurants have gone way up too, so I spend a lot of time going "you want me to pay HOW MUCH for lunch or a sandwich?? A couple years ago I could've gotten a whole dinner meal for that!"). Same goes for Subway... I was done after the last time when I noticed that a piece of bread with some vegetables on it now cost $7 or $8.

(I'll skip my worst food-poisoning story, from when I was a kid, because it goes way too TMI although it's a "I can laugh about it now" brand of funny. But a former coworker had told me about when she got bad water in a smoothie in Cambodia... apparently she was in the hospital for at least a few days if not longer, and didn't feel "right" for a few more months. It wouldn't surprise you that she was always on me to be careful eating street food... probably would've gone ballistic with the warnings had I ever made it to Cambodia.)

I agree 100%. It was the only thing I ever got at Taco Bell. Actually, when I did, it was one 7 layer and one bean burrito.

Gas stove, cast iron pan, and a Kroger beats TB every time. Leaves more money for bike parts, keeps me off the throne and out of sick bay.

Yeah, me too... that and the spicy tostada.

Thing is though, if there ever is a case of food positioning from Taco Bell, it'd likely be from the lettuce and then it would affect lots of other places too. Listeriosis and e Coli don't happen in a single serving size.

Wynona's got herself a big brown beaver and she shows it off to all her friends.
One day, you know, that beaver tried to leave her, so she caged him up with cyclone fence.
Along came Lou with the old baboon and said "I recognize that smell, Smells like seven layers, That beaver eatin' Taco Bell!".
