Comment from: richard, 75 or over Male (Patient) Published: November 18

I consumed food from a Deli. Approximately 1 month later received a letter from them notifying of an FDA recall of the product. I have had severe diarrhea for this period and my wife went to emergency with severe lung problems. She is in her 70's.
