House loses 9 pounds after bout with food poisoning

Jul. 30, 2013
 

Don’t expect Packers cornerback Davon House to order salmon the next time he dines out.

House said he was stricken with food poisoning a week ago Saturday after eating salmon in a Las Cruces, N.M., restaurant. That led to an ear infection, which led to a case of what he called labyrinthitis, which produces symptoms such as vertigo, hearing loss and balance disorders.

House’s weight dropped from 198 to 189, and the illness kept him out of Packers practice to start training camp. He returned today but pulled out due to cramps near the end of practice. He estimated that physically he’s at between 85% and 90%. His weight is up to 194.

“I couldn’t walk in a straight line, I wasn’t able to drive,” said House of the illness. “So it was tough. It was kind of scary.”

Besides experiencing frequent vomiting, House needed to be pushed through airports in a wheelchair on his way to Green Bay last week.

House wouldn’t name the restaurant but said he would eat there again. He said he won’t order salmon.
