An article on IWasPoisoned.com has been published in the Tacoma News-Tribune after IWasPoisoned.com helped report on a cluster of outbreaks attributed to a local Melting Pot restaurant. Thanks Tacoma News-Tribune. Read the full article here.

 

“Many random reports fill the site (reports cover only the past 30 days) but when a pattern emerges, as it did with the Melting Pot, IWasPoisoned.com contacts the local health...After the site and a caller notified the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department of possible food poisoning, the agency shut the restaurant down Dec. 30 for a day. The agency had not taken that step for an outbreak of illness since May, when it shut down the El Toro restaurant in Puyallup.”

Great to see this signed into law: 

"The Consumer Review Fairness Act of 2016 makes it illegal for companies to include “gag clauses”in their contracts that penalize or prohibit people from leaving reviews on websites and other forums.
President Barack Obama signed the act and 20 other bills into law on Wednesday without comment." - SAN DIEGO TRIBUNE

Leading foodborne illness defense attorney says companies should act quickly, not allow their legal depts to have 'too much influence', consider saying sorry. Says contaminated food incidences are potentially 'brand-killing'. Well said, we couldn't agree more. Quote from Nations Restaurant News here:

Contaminated food incidences are “potential brand-killing” events, so respond accordingly , Lawyer David Ernst said companies handling outbreaks should make sure to act quickly to reduce public and employee risk, provide adequate compensation for the injuries and losses of victims and consider saying, “We’re sorry.”

Ernst argued that operators should not allow their legal departments to “have way too much influence,” as “defending a lawsuit is not an important thing in an outbreak.” Ernst is a veteran defense attorney for food and restaurant companies with the Davis Wright Tremaine law firm.
