Food & Lodging Program Illness Complaint Form

Report an Illness Complaint

Please complete this form if you have an illness complaint and ate in a public establishment (for example, restaurant, food truck, wedding, festival, catered event, etc.) This questionnaire should take about 10-12 minutes of your time. The information you provide is used only for public health purposes. Please provide as much information as you can recall to help us investigate and protect others from potential exposures.

If you wish to submit a complaint about the cleanliness of the food or lodging establishment, please exit and submit information using the Food Safety and Lodging Sanitation Complaint Form.
