What do I do if I think I might have food poisoning?
Food Poisoning usually occurs 1 to 4 days after eating contaminated foods. If this is an emergency, contact 911.
If you'd like to report a suspected case of food poisoning, or what we call a 'Foodborne Illness,' call the Minnesota Department of Health at 877-366-3455.
- Hotline staff will ask you about your symptoms, and the foods you ate and where you ate them in the 4 days before your illness began.
- They will also ask if you drank any well water or went swimming in the 2 weeks before your illness.
- All information collected about your illness is private. Hotline staff will not release your name to anyone outside the public health system without your permission.
Should you require a reasonable accommodation in order to fully participate, or information in an alternative format, please contact 612-673-2301.
