Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

Find Your Health Department to Report Food Poisoning or Foodborne Illness

Screen shot 2011-02-24 at 2.57.40 PM.pngMost state health departments encourage consumers to report food poisoning incidents to local health departments.  Food Safety News has provided links (see below) to pages on state health department or public health association Web sites where you can directly report a foodborne illness, or where you can obtain contact information to report your illness to your local public health agency. 

Food Safety News is considering ways to make it even easier for consumers to report illnesses quickly so foodborne illness outbreaks are stopped and restaurants and manufacturing problems are corrected.
