Foodborne Disease and Gastroenteritis Outbreaks

If you think you got sick from eating a certain food, contact your local public health authority.

It is estimated that 48 million people get sick and 128,000 are hospitalized from foodborne disease in the U.S. each year. Common symptoms of foodborne illness are diarrhea or vomiting (gastroenteritis). Noroviruses are the most common cause. Public Health Division staff investigate foodborne gastroenteritis outbreaks and work with local health departments to notify people when outbreaks occur.
