Ryne Sandberg says a burger at Citi Field gave him food poisoning

PHILADELPHIA - Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg says a Shake Shack hamburger at Citi Field gave him food poisoning during Philadelphia's weekend series at the New York Mets.

Sandberg says he lost six pounds in two days because he became sick after eating the burger. Mets first baseman Lucas Duda also says a burger from the same place made him ill.

"A couple of coaches took a bite and didn't like what they saw and threw the rest away," Sandberg told reporters before Tuesday's game. "I was in a rush, so I ended up putting it away. I had one piece of toast in two days, and I'm feeling fine about that. I don't want anything in my stomach."

Shake Shack runs one of the most popular concession stands at the Mets home, with long lines every game.

"We've served thousands of guests at our Citi Field Shack over the past week, and this is the first we've heard of any issue whatsoever," Shake Shack spokesman Greg Waters said. "We take every guest concern of any sort seriously, and as such reached out to Ryne Sandberg to get more information since we have not heard from him. We stand by our food quality 100 per cent.
