Iwaspoisoned.com was founded in 2009 in response to the lack of any co-ordinated, consumer led, national food reporting system.
Food poisoning is a common, costly, and avoidable menace. Our goal is to reduce the number of foodborne illness outbreaks by making the system more transparent. We do that with the help of your reports.

If you got food poisoning it's important to report it. You should drink fluids to prevent dehydration, and avoid solid foods until the vomiting has passed. If you experience severe belly pain, dehydration, high fever, bloody diarrhea, or prolonged or bloody vomiting, it is recommended to seek medical care.
