 If you have vomiting, upset stomach or diarrhea and think you got sick from eating food that came from a food service inspected by CCPH, call 541-751-2431 or email to EH@CO.COOS.OR.US and report the following:

  • Your name and contact information
  • Name of person sick and their contact information (if you are reporting for a friend or family member)
  • The symptoms you are experiencing (what they’re like, when they started, how long they lasted)
  • What you have eaten that may have caused the illness
  • Where did you get the food that you believe made you sick (restaurant name & location)
  • Why do you feel your illness is caused by food poisoning

Reporting illnesses will help us find and correct problems in food preparation and this can protect other people from getting sick.  

As allowed by law, your personal information is confidential. False reporting is subject to legal ramifications.
