what if I got sick off the chicken and had no insurance and did not go to the doctor?

I was sold chicken with the code by Vons.com. Hearing about this on a cbs2 newscast, I didn’t eat the chicken. When I called for a return or refund I was told the chicken was safe and told to call a Fosters Farm number to hear proper preparation and handling instructions. I am angry. The chicken is still in my freezer.

I am still recovering from this horrible poisoning. I have never been this sick, and now my extremities are cramping due to the dehydration. I called Foster Farms. They were rude and told me someone would gt back to me within 48 to 72 hrs!!!! Oh my Gosh. I really wanted to cry. I’ve now been to a top Gastroentronologist , who confirmed salmonella, have to do stool cultures, have blood tests drawn and analyzed, and can’t go back to work until my Doctor says I can. How is this possible that a company can poison you with no repercussions? Not even a website to tell us how to recover? Believe me, the post illness is just as wearing. Thanks for listening.

I also got campylobacter in October 2013. I have still not recovered, and have long term residual effects. I also bought my chicken at Von’s, got severely ill, I have documents from my gastro entroologistl. My case was reported to LA health department TWICE, because it never really went away. Now I have rheumatoid arthritis, IBS,possible Chrons disease. I’m more than willing to join this suit.
