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.”
