8 days ago, I bought a BBQ Western Bacon Whopper from Burger King in Livermore, CA (first street), right when they opened, ate it, and went home. I fell asleep shortly after that because of my schedule, it was one of the ONLY thing I ate that day besides some strawberries and blueberries earlier.
About 10-12 hours later after waking up, the diarrhea began, and 8 days later, I am STILL going to the bathroom about 30 times a day. I suppose it's better than 50-60 times a day (which is what it was for the last week or so). EVERYTHING runs right through me like my stomach is completely by-passing ANY digestion. I should have gone to the doctor, but I do not have the $$.
Thank God I am currently unemployed because I would not have been able to go to work. I have lost about 10 pounds as a result of that whopper. I have been in bed-ridden for almost the entire time. When I informed BK, they offered no real remedy except to say that they were sorry.
That was not enough, and I pressed further because of the seriousness of this offense. I do not want $$, I do not want gift cards, but I DO want that restaurant inspected for quality care. I am being told now from the district manager franchise (Scarbrough/Scarbrough) owner that they are filing a "crisis report," and I should be receiving a copy of it soon (according to them). DO NOT eat at the BK in Livermore because they are serving contaminated food.
I am 44 years old, and was able to hold out on going to the hospital as a result of this. The worst is over. I shutter to think what kind of shape I would be in right now if I was in my 60/70's, and this happened to me.
Having it "My Way" did not include 250+ trips to the toilet!!!! SHAME ON YOU BURGER KING!!!!!
