I am a fcod safety specialist formerly with the Food Safety Inspection Service. I find it hard to believe that only 3,142 Americans have died in a one year period. That number could be tripled.

Sept 5-8 my husband and I went to a Spiritual Hunger convention in Spokane Wash. we ate at a Wendys and had a spicy chicken sandwich. A couple of hours later I began having the worst pain in my stomach that I can remember ever having. I did go to the emergency room and was treated with pain meds and anti nausia. My Husband got sick the day after but he wasen't nearly as bad. I suspected the sandwich from the beginning.
