Website lets users report, track food poisoning in Tucson restaurants

Iwaspoisoned.com allows users to search for and report cases of food poisoning at local restaurants.

Have you had a tummy-turning experience at a restaurant? Plenty of people have, and now there's a website that thinks it can help prevent food poisoning.

Saying that it creates "safer dining through crowdsourcing," Iwaspoisoned.com, allows people across the country to report foodborne illnesses in their town. By doing so, it creates a searchable database for other users to check out before they dine.

Even our state agencies are on board, with the Arizona Department of Health Services calling the site "a great starting point for reporting foodborne illness."

You can make the search as broad or specific as you want, but if you just search for "Tucson," you can only view the 10 most recent reports. You can look up a specific restaurant, or search your address to find restaurants close to you.

Aside from the restaurant's name and location, reporters of food poisoning also have the option to provide symptoms, details and information about if they went to the doctor.

To see the 10 most recent Tucson restaurants to be flagged for making someone sick, check out the website.
