I bought a tuna sub at subway on 11-20-08. Ate half on the 20th and half on the 21st.I was vomiting from 12:30 fri. night until 10:00 sat. morning. Also a woman at work had subway on the 20th with her family, and they became sick. Anyone else out there been sick resently after eating at subway? These subway's were not at the same location.But are in Grand Rapids,MI.

Getting sick from a subway sandwich is noted right on the menu...they use nothing but usda non prime grade e meat. How do you think Jared got so thin !!

If you ate half the next day how long was the other half left sitting around? There is an intestinal flu going around I eat at various Subways several times a week and have never become ill. But I never eat Tuna salads at any place. Mayo mixes sitting ou all day is too risky in my opinion.

Yes - we had Subway on Tuesday, 25th which led to vomiting and stomach pains all night.

I use to own 2 Subways,No they only mix tuna daily..The subway inspectors come out weekly and always check dates,temps...I didn't eat at subway this week but i had a very bad case of intestinal flu.Went to the hospital and had test ran also cause i myself ate at sams joint.My husband didn't get sick just my self. I'm not saying you can't get sick from any restraunt,But usally in the winter processed luncheon meats are safer than the summer heat.If you want to stay away from a fast spoiling meat at subway it would be Turkey or Roast Beef.The beef sour's in its blood and turkey sours in the gel thats in it.(Juice)

I've been suspicious of the 'freshness' of the meat I've bought at subway recently (at several locations in NYC). Yesterday, halfway through his sandwich (when I was beginning to think my ham was less than fresh) my husband started vomiting, one of his meatballs was off, rancid, bad, whatever you want to call it, he was fine once he threw up his sandwich. I had stomach cramps last night and diarrhea this morning. I'd never voiced my concerns to him, but now know I will never eat there again. Now I think about it, I've seen employees put the old food with the new when stocking up - not good practice.

Never order tuna anywhere...make your own at home with fish that are canned or packaged in foil bags.

Apparently it affected your brain cells, too, because you can't spell worth a can of tuna!

Blimpie subs are better anyway. Much tastier and the bread is more fresh.

People always blame the last thing they ate when they get sick.

Most of the time, it takes around 12 hours for symptoms of food borne illnesses to occur. USUALLY these cases are contracted at home due to improper food handling procedures and cross contamination.

If you suspect an establishment's food has made you ill, you need to report it to the health department. If other complaints surface THEN there's a verifiable problem.

I ate at this subway restaurant in the oro valley area twice and got sick twice. I eat at subways a lot but never had a problem except in this outlet. I thing subway should do more inspecting if they want to protect the reputation of their franchise. did anyone get sick from eating at subways in oro valley AZ?

I ate at subway, and whatever I get I get sick. At first everything is fine then when i get to the last 3 bites I get nausea and get sick. I almost threw up manytimes in subway so I stopped eating, than I went to pita pit and never got sick, but now I do from that too! I say eat cow not chicken.

would that be the last three bites of a 6" or 12" sub? now what if you were to throw away the last three bites instead of finishing the sandwich, would you still fall ill? how about if you left like six bites, waited an hour then finished it? Do you eat your sandwich left to right or right to left? i'm thinking if you start on each end leave the three bites in the middle you may be ok. you sound like some nasty skank, and probably got something rotten on your hand that is making you sick. stop touching yourself where you P prior to eating.

I also got sick at Subway. Don't ever eat at the one in Oregon in Eagle Point off hwy 62. Funny thing is I was being helped by someone else and the other mean old lady told the younger one while she was making my sandwich "I'll take this one". She wasn't even the manager or anything. I even told my wife the week before that I think they were trying to poison me, because they were giving me these dirty looks. Well, sure enough I got really sick for a day, thinking it was the flu. But I got over it the next day, so it was definitely food poisoning. You should always get the person's name when they're making your food and write it on your receipt so you can go back there and complain to the manager and get the mean old lady fired! Then go to the health department and file a complaint. If everyone did that, all these dumb restaurants would have accountability. And the individual workers would know that you know their name. Make sure to say ask them their name and say thank you "(mean old lady's name" and joke with them "I hope I don't get sick this time, because I won't be happy with you "mean old lady's name" if I do.

I was thinking why so many people get so sick from eating at Subway. It's because when they put the cold meats out, it isn't at such an ideal temperature to stop the growth of bacteria. Then it gets worse, because if no one orders the slices of meat all day, they just put it back in the refrigerator. Then the next day they put it out again, until some unlucky customer orders it and consumes the meat. Does the bacteria disappear? No! In fact, health experts say that when you do have food, such as leftovers, and want to eat it the next day, that it should be heated thoroughly till the food reaches a temperature of 175 degrees to kill any salmonella. If it doesn't as in the case of subway meats, then you've got tens of thousands of people getting sick... deathly sick. The meats contain millions of salmonella bacteria. Those with weaker immune systems, such as the young and the old, actually die every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that food born diseases cause 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths in the United States each year. http://www.cdc.gov /ncidod/eid/vol5no 5/mead.htm
