On January 28, foodborne illness victims and their families visit members of Congress on Capitol Hill.

Gabrielle Meunier is a resident of South Burlington, whose 7-year-old son became ill from a salmonella infection in 2008.  She is in Washington DC this week to meet with members of the Vermont delegation about the Food Safety Modernization Act.

She spoke with Vermont Edition about the meeting, and her son's experience with a food borne illness.
