I've had where the food didn't agree with me with a slight stomach upset. But never where I was throwing up etc. (I've only thrown up like 5 times in life)

Nope. Maybe I've been lucky because I eat out constantly.

^And like the poster above, I rarely throw up and haven't done so in over 20 years (knock on wood).

Mayonnaise from a jar is probably the last thing that will fail. What's in the mayonnaise might be a problem.

Yes, I've gotten food poisoning from restaurant food. It's never been bad enough to require a visit to the emergency room or a hospital admission.

Chicken pasta dish in the late 80's left me in the hospital so bad that I almost had to have my throat cut to breathe because my body developed intense hives from the food poisoning. Spent about week there and it was not pleasant. From now on I only eat chicken pasta, especially cream types, from my own kitchen.

I can only recall once getting sick from something I ate, and it was shrimp. I still eat it, but only wild caught from US waters. No more farmed fish.

My mother always kept the mayo in the pantry, never in the refrigerator. I keep it chilled, because the jar says so, but I'm not sure it's necessary. All those little packets given out by delis and restaurants are room temperature, right?

Yes, and mine was also from a hot dog -- a kosher deli at the Albany, NY, airport. (Thankfully, we were arriving, not departing; it hit me about 20 minutes later in the car, and we had to make a couple of stops before we got to the hotel.)

The mayonnaise will be fine, but you have to be careful about contaminating the contents of the jar. No double dipping. When I worked in food service, take out sandwich place, we'd put the mayo we thought we might use in the next hour in a bowl. We could add more and threw away what we hadn't used. Lots of double dipping going on there--spreading and dropping the spatula back in the bowl.

I keep my mayonnaise in the refrigerator because I like it cool, and not everyone is as careful as I am. Half of the time I use mayo, I have to spoon out stuff that's been introduced to the jar.

Not food poisoning per se... but me and onions DO NOT GET ALONG. And sometimes the tastes in some dishes are so vibrant I miss the onion... and oh, do I get sick.

The last time I had onion rings I was sick for three days. That's when I figured out the onion issue.
