got ill from Panera food

ate lunch yesterday from Panera Bread, an hour later I became nauseous. By evening I was vomiting and had diarrhea. Fever developed, vomiting and diarrhea continued through the night. My friend will be here soon to take me to hospital, it's not getting better.
@ Steve Daba: if I had never gotten sick from the food at Panera Bread, your f-bombs are enough to keep me away from any Panera Bread stores. If you are a representation of the best they have to offer, I can do without.

Unsanitary/Disgusting/unhealthy

I've worked at my Panera Bread for 4 years and all Panera's are not like your. Obviously your panera is not keeping up with codes because these things that happen at Panera that you speak of NEVER happen at my panera. Obviously you and your other co-workers are breaking one of the panera "rules" by taking short cuts. Like not cleaning and date dots. And there is a system to preserving soup for the night that if you get a stomach after eating the soup at your store you are OBVIOUSLY doing it wrong. You cannot group all Panera's together because of your disgusting store. Maybe you all should just be fired and hired a new staff that does the work that they are suppose to!

Unsanitary/Disgusting/unhealthy

Hi,
I have worked at a Panera Bread for the past year and a half. I have seen many different things in my 18 years of living but nothing compares to the sheer atrocities I experience daily at Panera. Let me explain.

First of all DO NOT EAT THE CREAM BASED SOUPS. (IE Tomato, Clam Chowder, Black Bean, Mushroom) These soups are supposed to be only used once. However at my store and others they will
1. Thaw soups for that day. 2. Heat soups up.
3. At the end of the night re freeze the soup.
4. Next morning they will heat it up again.

This is horrible because anyone who eats this soup again after the first day will get a terrible stomach ache and possibly food poisoning. If you have ever gotten sick at panera this is probably the reason. No Joke I have seen soups with day dots on them from 2 weeks ago that we serve. It is disgusting.

Next the Iced Tea and Iced Coffee containers are vile. They are never cleaned out at the end of each night and contain resedue of old tea and old coffee probably weeks if not months old. The insides are often black and collecting harmful bacteria. Maggots are prone to these containers and will end up in your drinking cup!

Also Bread will be dropped on the floor and then served again.

The worst I have ever seen was we had to clean under the food serving station and underneath where they prepare the food for each customer. THERE WERE MAGGOTS GROWING! they do not clean the store properly and food is often left for months!

I'm telling you that your best bet is to Just choose somewhere else to eat. Panera bread contrary to some beliefs is not healthy for you. A single cookie contains as many calories as a hamburger from Mcdonalds.

Do yourself a favor and just go to Mcdonalds. Its cheeper and probably more sanitary.

Why does it seem that some of the people that have had some level of success with 5 Linx seem so arrogant? It's great that you have decided to sell a crappy product to some "get wit" who actually bought it from you. That lets me know that you are definitely a great sales person. Kudos to you :)
