Have you recently been ill?
If you believe a recent illness is related to a food service establishment, please contact the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s 24-hour, 7 days a week disease reporting line at 1-800-821-5821. Please keep in mind that many foodborne pathogens can take days, weeks, and in the case of Hepatitis A, months to show symptoms. The most recent place you’ve eaten isn’t always the culprit.
