How to report a possible foodborne illness
Did you or others in your party get sick after eating food prepared by a King County food business?
Call 206-296-4774 Toll-free: 1-800-325-6165, ext. 6-4774
Please have the following information ready when you call:
- Name and location of food establishment
- Date and time of meal
- Foods consumed
- Symptoms of illness
- Contact information for you and other members of your party, including those who did not get sick
If more information is needed, a member of the Communicable Disease Epidemiology and Immunization Section may call you back to get more details about what you ate and drank and the symptoms you experienced.
All information will be kept confidential. Your answers will help us determine if food served at the establishment is responsible for illness.
