The issue in GetHuman3841693's own words
To whom this may concern,**My name is Rebeca and I would like to report to Costco that I was diagnosed with food poisoning from eating the Costco beef hot dog on Sunday Oct **th, ****. I did my shopping at Costco and purchased a hotdog and ate it at Costco. Within a few hours my symptoms developed. I was admitted to the hospital on Sunday night around **pm. I was released Monday morning with the diagnosis of food poisoning. I was admitted to the hospital at Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga once again on Wednesday because I became severely sick and my symptoms worsened. With further testing, the food poisoning lead to an infection in my small intestine, which I nearly developed an abscess. I was very glad my family took me back, my fever was not controlled, and my abdominal pain was excruciating, which is why I was taken back on Wednesday. I stayed in the hospital receiving two types of antibiotics through intravenous due to the bacteria for a few days. The gastroenterologist specialist I saw, explained to me that with the tests that were done and stool culture collected. The bacteria found which caused this is only found in chicken or beef. Either contaminated or undercooked meats. The Costco hotdog I had was the last beef food item I had eaten within the last * days prior to Sunday. I had also not consumed any chicken within the last * days prior. I have a report from Credit Valley with the name of the bacteria that was found, and antibiotics I was given through IV, and more antibiotics I had to finish at home. The gastroenterologist explained the hotdog was the culprit. I just wanted to bring this to attention. I went through a terrible week and this caused so much problems for me throughout this week. I lost a week of work as I am paid hourly and this greatly affected my family and I financially. I hope that this matter is looked into in order to prevent any future health problems for others and financial burden that this may bring upon families due to the debilitating symptoms. **Sincerely,**Rebeca Bachur
