Good point. The chicken likely came from the same place, And I sampled some of his food as well. Not sure about the logistics of it. I think coffee and donuts this week only. If he gets "poisoning" from that then it will be bottled water and the local park. What more can i do?

Definitely not your fault! It sounds more like he had a stomach bug or sometimes something we eat just doesn't go over well and it's not because there's anything wrong with the food. Pretty crappy to blame you when you were just trying to be nice. Hopefully he feels better soon and stops being a baby towards you!

I hate to say it, But given he is anonymous here I must admit he can be like this sometimes. One time we went out to a bar and after some tequila he started crying. Guess he is just sensitive. I have said too much i think.

All is well now either way as far as me and him.

Many years ago my mother took my grandmother out for dinner as a birthday present. My grandmother got severe food poisoning that landed her in the hospital where she almost died. Actually got in her lungs. Not once did my grandmother ever think it was my mom's fault. Your friend needs to get a grip.

A you can do is say you're sorry he got ill. You are certainly not responsible for his getting food poisoning....if indeed it is. My daughter got food poisoning and she was sicker than a dog. IF he just has flu like symptoms and a stomach ache, it isn't food poisoning. Not very kind of him to blame you personally. What is it they say...."No good deed goes unpunished".

Thank you! Now I don't have to type that up.

Plus, these things are notoriously difficult to pin down. It can take days or even weeks for food poisoning to make itself known. Has he been tested? Because Salmonella has an incubation period of up to three days. E. coli incubation is 3 to 8 days. If it's a parasite like Giardia, it can take up to two weeks.

So if you went out, and the next day he was sick, unless his meat was spoiled, he may have to look elsewhere. Ask him what his doctor said.

But even then, it's not your fault. What a jerk.

Next time, just let him pick the place and then it will be all his fault.

It's natural to feel guilty, even if it's not your fault. But the fact is, it wasn't. You just recommended a place that you trusted. You did not prepare the food, don't sweat it.

Ugh, just don't make a habit out of it. Everyone hates that person who never suggests what to do/where to eat and is the first to complain if they don't enjoy it.

^^^ This sums it up perfectly. ^^^^^

I think it's horribly rude that he put the onus on you.
