Use the government site for this town. Go to the health departmrnt site. Yo will see inspection reports of this restaurant. Write the restaurant with copies of the last two reports, especially if negative. Also, send to the newspaper. You can also let the health department know about your illness. I had a similiar experience with a restaurant. The restaurant was closed untl they corrected the unsanitary conditions. We have a responsibility to report unsafe practices.. Find out where the Red Lobster headquarters are and notify them along with the inspection reports. I assure you you will get a response. The criteria for food poisoing vs 'flu' or stomach upset by other causes is that food poisoning causes symptoms about 6 hours after eating the food. Occasionally, you might get aymptoms even three hours after eating especially in children, but on the average it is six hours. Restaurants do not want you to know about the health department's reports. If you can't find them and you want to pursue this, you caqn get them under the authoriy of the 'Freedom of Information' Act. This info is online. Good luck.
