Food Illnesses and Restaurant Complaints
The Office of Epidemiology works in collaboration with MCDPH Community Health Nursing, Maricopa County Department of Environmental Services, Arizona Department of Health Services, Maricopa County Medical Examiner, and other entities to investigate and respond to disease outbreaks.
Outbreaks could be caused by the consumption of contaminated food or water, by exposure to infected persons or animals, or by other means. Investigations may include requesting restaurant or other site inspections, interviewing patients and contacts, obtaining medical records and specimens, reviewing laboratory results, analyzing statistical data and other tasks.
To report a complaint about a food establishment visit Maricopa County Department of Environmental Services or call 602.506.6616
