The information you report through this website is safe, secure and confidential!

Your report is automatically sent to Public Health Madison & Dane County, and only authorized staff can access it. Information you provide will not be shared with restaurants or any other third parties.

Please Seek Medical Advice

Contact your health care provider, especially if you are:

  • Pregnant, elderly, have a weak immune system, or if the ill person is an infant. Any of these conditions put people at higher risk of getting sick if exposed to germs in contaminated food, and at higher risk of developing serious medical problems.
  • Having severe symptoms such as bloody diarrhea, severe nausea and vomiting or a high fever.
