Do you love going out to eat?  Our family loves eating out on Sundays after church.  I was a bit disturbed to find there is a website where consumers can report food poisoning in each state.

iwaspoisoned.com was developed in 2009.  The mission is to use data to bring together consumers, public health, and industry in near real-time to keep people safer and businesses more profitable. The platform is a consumer-led website for diners to report suspected food poisoning or bad food experiences. It allows users to report food poisoning from businesses, food products, or if they have general symptoms. This real-time information is shared by consumers, food authorities, restaurants, and industry with one aim – to make eating a safer experience. By aggregating and analyzing citizen-submitted data, our site prevents food poisoning outbreaks, reduces risks, and creates better outcomes for restaurants, shareholders, and the public.

Since establishing the site they have received 89,000 plus reports.
