Food Poisoning

The City requires that all cases of food poisoning be reported. These reports may include food poisoning from eating food prepared by any commercial establishment or from eating at parties, weddings, banquets, or other gatherings. Symptoms of food poisoning are vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.

When reporting cases of food poisoning, it is important to indicate the number of people who became sick and the food suspected of causing the illness. If possible, the food suspected of causing the illness should be kept for possible testing by the City. Please provide at least a daytime phone number for follow-up.
