Re:What A Surprise!
Shigella is not funny. It is a communicable and very painful dysentery condition. It can kill, so seek medical treatment.
.....I know, I had it years ago and I wont forget it. I got it from my bady daughter who got it at her day care. .....I changed her diaper a serveral times that night; washed my hands real good, but still came down with shigella the next day.
As far as the Applebee's above, that outbreak could be caused by a sick customer or restaruarant employee..................So did any or ALL of the kitchen help get sick too? ...If they did not it was not the food or produce!
