This past Mother's Day, May 11, 2014, myself, my 2 year old, my mother n' law, her sister and our pastor dined at Golden Coral. When I walked in it never smelled clean but I decided perhaps some of the diners were sweaty and maybe not as fresh.
The next day I got severely ill. I started having harsh stomach cramps that turned into nausea, then vomiting. My vomiting was accompanied, simultaneously by diarrhea. Next, I get a phone call from my husband, who is on is way back home to help me.
My mother n law is with him and she has just started throwing up. Long story short, my mother n law is hospitalized, my 2 year old has horrible diarrhea and although I didn't go to hospital, the diarrhea came back. After brainstorming, we discovered each of us (me, mamma, and my 2 year old) had eaten the same things. Myself and my daughter had smaller portions and my mother n law had eaten the entire portion.
Mother's sister and pastor had not eaten the same dishes. WE came to the conclusion, it had to have been the food last eaten, which was the Golden Coral dishes. And since we had gone our separate ways after dining, it wasn't a virus or "bug". If this were so, mother's sister would have gotten sick as well since they went to the same house afterwards.
I find this situation appalling and absolutely horrible.
This establishment is obviously careless with there foods. We will be filing a legal complaint.
