Help prevent further incidents of food poisoning.
Each year, millions of people get food poisoning and thousands die. The majority of cases are unreported due to mild illness, limited public knowledge of reporting methods, and the absence of laboratory confirmation of disease.
Reporting improves the timely detection of foodborne outbreaks, helping prevent more illnesses from occurring. Reporting helps improve the accuracy of estimated foodborne disease rates. It helps evaluate food policies, and keeps communities safe.

“I bought take out from this restaurant. One of the dishes was chicken curry. I got home, had a few large bites but something tasted off. Having never eaten from here before, I thought it was their version. I mixed in more rice with it and had a few more... bites. I tried eating some of the other stuff but I couldn’t. After going to bed, about five hours later I became nauseated, which is rare for me. Then came the projectile vomiting. I didn’t make it to the toilet bowl. It was on the wall, the floor, the counter, the sink, the floor, all over the toilet except the bowl. The bathroom looked like a crime scene. I have had fevers up to 102, muscle and joint aches, my bones actually ache. I am improving, this is day 6. As a retired RN, these symptoms are very consistent with salmonella poisoning. I just need to report this. This was the chicken and/or the handlers. ”
“Got this for free from someone giving out free food for those in need. I literally only had 1 bite & before long, maybe 20-25 mins, I became very nauseous with massive pain in center of my stomach & very dizzy also. It came on very suddenly & unexpected. It... also had an odd taste, but I just assumed that was how the store prepared it, as I've never tried their store brand Corn Bread. Please be cautious as this was no joke. The pain lasted hours up until bedtime accompanied by very unpleasant overall feeling in my body. 2nd time I've had an issue with food from this store. 1st time was already made served hot fried chicken. Buyer beware. ”
