    Default Urgent advice needed... I just ate raw chicken

    So I decided to heat up some enchiladas I got from Aldi... I actually assumed it was pre cooked as the top already looked a little cooked....

    So it was in my oven for longer than advised (10 mins more) and I cut it in half and it was really hot so I began eating..... I was about a quarter of a way through when I realised the texture was getting weird... Like cheap thigh meat... A couple more mouthfuls and I cut it open and to my horror the middle of the enchilada had raw chicken

    I immediately went to the bathroom and vomited... I brought up a fair bit so think I got all of it... But is there anything else I should do.

    Has this happened to anyone else... What are my chances or salmonella poisoning?

    Ahhhh so stupid

    It's honestly hard to tell, depending on how the chicken was handled and packed originally, shelf life etc it could take up to 2 days I "think" for salmonella symptoms to appear so in the meantime drink lots of water, take pro biotics if you have them, eat yogurt and just any foods that help your gut ( fermented foods, fresh fruit and veggies) so just in case you do get it you can load up your body to best help you fight it - odds are hopefully on your side!

    Honestly vomiting most of it up was probably the best thing you could have done. If you did it as quickly as it appears then it's likely there is nothing left. Everything EM has suggested will help. You could find yourself with vomiting for a day or so but likely that will be the worst of it.

    I ate raw chicken once- we had been drinking at a BBQ and it was dark so I didn't realise till far too late. I did get sick but it quickly- was within a few hours. It was basically a lot of vomiting until my stomach was empty, then I felt ok.

    Fingers crossed you'll be fine!

    Oh no! Hopefully you'll be okay after vomiting it up so quickly.

    My DH had chicken nachos recently from a popular Mexican food chain and he threw up shortly after and noticed raw chicken bits in it. Thankfully after that initial vomit he was okay.

    Thank you ladies for the advice. I've woken up feeling fine so hoping this means there will be no ill effects from this.

    Don't think I will ever be able to eat Mexican chicken ever again
