WHAT
Iwaspoisoned.com is for people who love to eat out but don’t expect to be ill because of it. It is a consumer led website for diners to report suspected food poisoning or bad food experiences. This real time information is shared by consumers, food authorities, restaurants, and industry with one aim – to make eating a safer experience.
HOW
Iwaspoisoned.com collects and screens reports of foodborne illness across the United States and the world, and shares that information with public health departments and industry. Your reports can help identify and track outbreaks in their earliest stages. So whether it’s bad food from a restaurant or your local store, Iwaspoisoned.com welcomes your report.
WHY
Iwaspoisoned.com was founded in 2009 in response to the lack of any co-ordinated, consumer led, national food reporting system. More reports and greater visibility will lead to safer food, safer communities and a healthier economy. Food poisoning is a common, costly, and avoidable menace. Our goal is to reduce the number of foodborne illlness outbreaks by making the system more transparent. We do that with the help of your reports.
