    I became sick after eating at a restaurant, what should I do?


    Answer:

    Contact us as soon as possible after becoming ill (303-271-5700). We are interested in investigating potential food-borne illnesses and will need to obtain a 72-hour food history to better pinpoint the potential source of the problem. Note that it takes anywhere from one hour to several weeks to become ill from a food-borne pathogen; therefore, the last meal you ate may not have been the one that made you ill. Obtaining confirmation from your doctor is also important because it can tell us what type of foods may be involved.
