Great piece on iwaspoisoned.com here in the Arizona Star. Thanks Tucson.com and Arizona Star. 

"Even our state agencies are on board, with the Arizona Department of Health Services calling the site "a great starting point for reporting foodborne illness." You can make the search as broad or specific as you want, but if you just search for "Tucson," you can only view the 10 most recent reports. You can look up a specific restaurant, or search your address to find restaurants close to you.

Tough to deliver when so badly understaffed.

"The explanation is simple: not enough inspectors. The city has 38 full-time inspectors to handle a workload that the IG says would take 94."

Inspections Crains Artice

City Inspector General Joe Ferguson says: 

"This audit revealed a curious and troubling landscape respecting an important government function critical to the protection of public health and safety, ...The city failed to provide CDPH with the resources it needs to meet the standards for food inspections, standards that the city itself adopted into its regulations. The result is long-term, continual noncompliance."

 

Spokeswoman for Mayor Rahm Emanuel says: 

“While we appreciate the inspector general's review, Chicagoans can have confidence that their food is safe because it was prepared in a sanitary kitchen, thanks to the work our health inspectors do to ensure restaurants and establishments across the city meet the health code. We are committed to keeping our restaurants clean and our residents safe from food-borne illnesses, despite the fact that we have long faced a lack of appropriate funding by the state to meet their own requirements.”
