Just Cooked & Ate Spoiled Chicken

22 posts in this topic

I just cooked a chicken breast that had been sealed in the fridge for over a month. Don't ask me why, it boils down to the fact that I'm a fucking moron.

 

Poison Control lady on the phone said there's a slim chance I could get sick and told me to stop throwing up on purpose.

 

I'm still freaking out. It's like the smell of it raw is haunting my nose.

 

Ate half the breast at 2:00pm.

 

If I survive... I won't ever be this fucking stupid again, if I can help it. ugh.

If it was really bad, you'll throw it up without trying.

You might have the runs for awhile, but a half a chicken breast most likely won't do anything.

I agree with what florduh said.

 

Usually if you have food poison you will know it almost right away or within the next 12 hours, and you won't have to force yourself to throw up but you will need a bowl for each end. Salmonella is very nasty. I have been poisoned three or four times, not by my food though, so fair warning--don't leave sight of the toilet for a while!

 

I remember once I put a fresh chicken, or so I thought at the time, into a crock pot and left it to cook until I got home for lunch. When I got home, I opened my apartment door and the smell of cooked rotten chicken was over powering causing dry-heaves from the smell alone until I got it thrown out into the dumpster!

If you truly have food poisoning you'll know it because it comes rocketing out both ends (plus you usually get a high fever). I've had it on vacation and it's not pleasant but more than survivable.

 

Forcing yourself to vomit when you don't have to just ruins your esophagus for no reason so stop that. The body can deal with spoiled food pretty well on its own using the acid in the stomach so don't take anything that might suppress it (like antacid) for the next day or so.

 

Often the idea of eating bad food is usually worse than the actual eating of the bad food itself.

Ew! I feel your pain. At a potluck once we had a lady make barbequed chicken that was so spoiled we could smell it outside the building. She tried to tell everyone that bbq chicken was supposed to smell like that. Nobody believed her, thankfully.

 I'm so sorry pockets - I don't know why this struck me so funny. It's just the way you wrote it, I will pray to the sky god that you will be alright! I had food poisoning one time with bad salmon - hope you don't go thru what I went thru...........................Get the bucket ready!! :twitch:  ....hope you feel better soon!!

As long as your thoroughly cooked it, you'll be ok. People have had rotten mammoth meat and survived; some explorers had run out of food and spotted a wooly mammoth carcase in the ice and ate it. They said it tasted like rotten meat but didn't get sick from it because the ice had preserved it for all these millions of years and they thoroughly cooked it.

I'm sure that's true if done excessively, but I'm with poison control on this one. Getting it out before the bacteria has a chance to reproduce inside his colon is far better than a bit of acid burning on the back of the throat.

 

I had food poisoning so bad a few years ago that I had to take Cipro to kill it after 2 weeks of vomiting, diarrhea and amoxocilian failed me and left me emaciated.

I hate to say it, especially considering what an amazing paleontogical find ended up in someone's belly, but I'm a bit envious of those explorers. Even if it tasted damned awful, getting to eat a prehistoric animal is definitely a once in a lifetime event.

 

And pockets, you shouldn't have been so hard on yourself. Everybody does dumb things(I've done a few that I was lucky they didn't earn me a Darwin Award) , just be glad that you're going to be ok.

I got salmonella a couple of years ago - first time I got really sick after leaving Christianity. Very frustrating not being able to pray, and just hope I'd survive. It was pretty awful.

 

Ate bad chicken once too, but I took care of that with half a bottle of vodka. ;)

 

Glad you're okay!

I've had food poisoning a few times - most of the time from local restaurants (Applebee's once and IHOP twice) and once from a frozen microwavable dinner thing (a Stouffer's flat-bread thing). Two days of feeling miserable and near-constant vomiting/diarrhea followed by a few days of being pale, sore, and weak once whatever it was passed out of my system.

 

Part of the problem was that I'd eat lunch and then go to bed (work the night shift) so whatever I ate that was bad would just sit in my gut and rot (once I'm asleep I usually won't wake up from an upset stomach). If I'd been awake I probably would've thrown the stuff up and it would've been over with. Once the food poisoning gets into your intestines there's not much you can do but ride it out.

To pick the nit the poison control people said to stop throwing up on purpose:

"Poison Control lady on the phone said there's a slim chance I could get sick and
told me to stop throwing up on purpose
."

 

I agree that food poisoning can sometimes become very nasty. It must have been a particularly nasty strain you picked up. Usually there's no need to induce vomiting on a maybe.

Get through the night okay?

:] Yeah I relaxed after 9 hours had passed. I had cooked it, so I guess it's the bacteria that's really dangerous -- my stomach seemed to have killed all the heat-resistant toxins that would have been there.

Glad you got through the night. The smell alone would've had me vomiting. I cooked some mildly off beef a few months ago and started to wretch just a few minutes into cooking lol

This made me laugh. When I was at the Universtiy of Denver Music School, the german orchestra conduct wondered where a student was. They said she was sick. He advised the class to tell her to drink two liters of beer that had been heated up to about boiling and she'd be fine.

 

Give his usual dry delivery I was never sure if he was joking.

Beer heated up to boiling would have lost most if not all of its alcohol content, so there is a good chance he wasn't joking. Of course, I drank the vodka strictly for the alcohol content, and I"m not certain what warm beer would do, but I do know that a couple centuries ago when their were issues with the water, people who drank beer and/or wine instead had a better chance of living. :)
