How to Report Food Poisoning in Texas

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on July 19, 2013

How to Report Food Poisoning in TexasIf you have ever experienced food poisoning, you know how miserable it is. Food poisoning can cause nausea, diarrhea and even lead to death. It’s important to report food poisoning, so that you can prevent it from occurring to others. Here are three tips on how to report food poisoning in Texas:

1. Call Your Doctor or 911

If you are experiencing the symptoms of food poisoning, and it’s an emergency, you should call 911 immediately. It’s vital to get the medical care you need before doing anything else.

2. Contact Your City or County Health Department

You can contact your Texas Health Department here. On the health department site, you can report a foodborne illness, get health inspection information or obtain contact information for your local public health agency. Once you report the food poisoning, the Texas Health Department will start an investigation. If two or more people get food poisoning from the same contaminated food or drink, it’s considered a foodborne outbreak. The health department will investigate in order to prevent more sickness and determine the cause of the food poisoning.

3. Set-Up an Appointment with a Texas Food Poisoning Lawyer

Food poisoning is usually due to the negligence of someone else and can stem from a variety of causes. A Texas food poisoning attorney can help you get the justice and compensation you are entitled to for your physical and emotional trauma.

If you or a loved one were a victim of food poisoning, the experienced Texas food poisoning attorneys at The Law Office of WT Johnson will help you get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today and set-up your free, no-obligation consultation.
