Stephanie Armour has joined The Wall Street Journal as a financial, banking and consumer regulation reporter based in Washington, D.C, a company spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday.

She previously worked at Bloomberg News where she covered food safety and public health. Earlier this year, she won a Sigma Delta Chi award for Public Service in Magazine Journalism for “Poisoned System,” which she reported and wrote along with John Lippert and Michael Smith for Bloomberg Markets.

The story was a months-long investigation that detailed broad conflict-of-interest problems with private food-safety auditing firms, including Peanut Corporation of America’s auditor, which gave the company’s Georgia plant a “superior” rating before the Salmonella outbreak.

It also won a National Press Club award in July.

Armour previously worked as a reporter at USA Today and the Des Moines Register. She is a 1997 graduate of the University of Minnesota and also went through the Knight Science Program boot camp at MIT.
