Escolar syndrome!

Hey all -

I posted about this yesterday and my post got removed...maybe because I included a link in the body of my email. I don't get why it would be deleted otherwuse.

Anyway, I had a horrible gastric experience last week, and after a small bit of research was able to trace it to the escolar I had for dinner nearly two days before. This was a very tasty dish at a well-regarded Manhattan restaurant, but I never would have ordered it if I knew what that fish is capable of.

Am I the last person around who didn't know about this? It totally freaked me out. Why do restaurants still serve escolar? Why don't they warn you?

I've linked to a thread on a health board about this as it is way too embarrassing to describe.

Anyone else had this experience? You may want to read the link below before eating escolar.
