Plastic taste in mouth

My 72yr. mother has a plastic taste in her mouth and the smell of food make her ill. I am having trouble getting her to eat.

Some medications cause strange taste in the mouth and nausea/vomiting. Also infections including viruses/bacteria may be the culprit.
Does she have a fever? Diarrhea?

Have her try a bland diet of Rice/Applesauce/dry Toast/and clear fluids such as water for a day or so. If she does not feel better she should go to the doctor.
