Can’t find food

I can’t seem to find any food that is not in my recent item. Can anyone tell me if this is only me?

    Nope, working fine for me. Type in the food and hit “search”.

    Never mind! I figured it out. Be sure to hit the search button after you put in the word. Don't just read the thing that says it can't find it, while you are typing.

    To search the database using the mobile app, choose Diary then Add Food or tap the large plus sign on the Home Page and choose Food then a Meal.

    After typing the search text, tap the search icon (magnifying glass), which may be to the right of the text box or on the pop-up keyboard of your mobile device; or there may be a Search key on the keyboard; or scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap "Search all MyFitnessPal foods for:."

    I have been using this app for a couple of years and today, 4th of July 2020, I can no longer find common foods, i.e. “chicken”. The app says press the + key to create my own food. I’ve deleted the app and downloaded again. It was working fine yesterday. Please get this corrected.

    Same here it was working perfectly fine until today 4th of July it suddenly can’t find any new foods what so ever, I already uninstalled and installed the app several times, turned on and off my data from the app and it still won’t find any food other than the ones I already have in my recents. It gives me the same problem as him ^ anyone know how to fix it ??
