Poblacion-favorite Wantusawa oyster bar addressed food poisoning claims made by several diners online, saying it adheres to “critical safety and health standards.”

On Jan. 23, Facebook user Coco Eje posted screenshots of diners' alleged food poisoning, saying they experienced diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, gas bloating, nausea, fever, and the like after eating at Wantusawa.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that food poisoning happens after one swallows certain germs like Salmonella or E. coli. Common symptoms, which can last for hours to days, include: diarrhea, stomach pain or cramps, nausea, vomiting, and fever.

Wantusawa in a statement Jan 25 said it takes customer feedback and reviews "very seriously," noting it always strives to provide freshly prepared meals while adhering to critical safety and health standards.

The TikTok-favorite restaurant said it has addressed each issue "in a timely fashion" requiring the necessary details in a "fair and scientific manner."

"In fact, laboratory tests conducted on samples for those dates formally complained of have shown a negative result for bacteria and thus clearing the possibility of any food poisoning," it said.

Wantusawa also took a swipe at so-called "social media bullying," saying it will review its options "to take any legal action against these purveyors of bullying and untruth."

"Wantusawa once again reiterates its commitment to delicious, safe, and healthy cuisine for all its patrons," it ended.
