Poison everyone?

My work has baking Friday. I spent yesterday painstakingly creating blueberry banana and chocolate muffins. Ate some of the mix, and tried a cooked piece.

Have woken up this morning feeling fine but with some bathroom symptoms. Could be stress, could be viral, could be my beautiful cakes ..

I have to throw the lot away and make an excuse at work right? 😞

Struggling to understand how blueberries, banana and chocolate could be a bad thing....

I wouldn't throw them away at all...

What's a bathroom symptom?

If you mean diarrhoea and vomiting, should you be into work with it anyway?

Hmm I'm not sure bakes goods are a huge source of "bathroom symptoms". If they tasted fine then presumably all the ingredients in them were fine. What else have you eaten?

I quite like the phrase 'bathroom symptons' - but then I have a phobia of vomit!

Yesterday I had, chicken salad, fruit, grilled salmon with veg, nothing risky

Yup- I meant diarrhoea- didn't want to put anyone off breakfast! Really- you would take a day of work for mild symptoms of that but otherwise feeling fine?

ItShouldHaveBeenJessCastismas it's what all my family say, all quite sqeamish 😬 My 5 year old has picked it up and sounds ridiculous

Salad and. Fruit are both RTE and so high risk, as is chicken if it was cooked and chilled.

Chucked salad is much more likely to be the culprit!

IminaPickle Fri 21-Oct-16 10:39:24

Or chicken

Brilliant username, probably my fave ever!!

"Really- you would take a day of work for mild symptoms of that but otherwise feeling fine?"

Isn't it more about not spreading your germs than how you actually feel?

Did the cake mix contain raw egg? chicken salad a possibility too, along with virus and myriad other sources.

Cakes likely OK when cooked, but I agree with PP you shouldn't work with diarrhoea.

Hope you feel better soon

The muffins have been baked so any nasties will have been nuked by the heat of the oven, unless you've handled them a lot since.

Salad and fruit are much more likely to have given you digestive problems as they have not been cooked. Also cooked chicken if it wasn't cooled correctly.

If I was your colleague I'd eat one!
