If I have food poisoning, how do I report my case?
The majority of foodborne illness cases go unreported. If you think you have contracted a foodborne illness, you should see a doctor so that he or she can confirm your diagnosis. At this point, the doctor will report his or her findings to the health department. If you did not see a doctor for your illness, but have reason to believe that you have food poisoning, you can also call your local health department to report it.
