Foodborne Illness Web Site Offers Resources on Common Causes of Food Poisoning

At least thirty people in Kershaw County, South Carolina have become ill with an apparent foodborne illness. While public health officials work to discover the bacteria or virus making people ill, those sickened may be turning to the Internet for information on foodborne illnesses. Marler Clark has re-launched its Web site about foodborne illness, www.FoodborneIllness.com. Since the site was re-designed and launched on April 14, 2005, over 15,500 unique visitors have used the site.
FoodborneIllness.com offers practical information about several forms of food poisoning, including the symptoms and risks associated with infection, how infections are diagnosed, and possible ways to prevent infection. The information on this site lends itself to the media, individuals, and the families of individuals who have been affected adversely by eating bad food.
