Why It's Important to Report Food Poisoning

  • When two or more people get the same illness from the same contaminated food or drink, the event is called a foodborne outbreak.
  • Reporting illnesses to the state health department helps them identify potential outbreaks of foodborne disease.
  • Public health officials investigate outbreaks to control them, so more people do not get sick in the outbreak, and to learn how to prevent similar outbreaks from happening in the future.
