USA – Annual Reports on Foodborne Illness Source Attribution Estimates


Foodborne Illness Source Attribution Estimates for SalmonellaEscherichia coli O157, Listeria monocytogenes, and Campylobacter Using Multi-Year Outbreak Surveillance Data, United States.

Latest Report for 2019

IFSAC analyzed data from 1,532 foodborne disease outbreaks that occurred from 1998 through 2019 to assess which categories of foods were most responsible for SalmonellaE. coli O157, Listeria monocytogenes, and Campylobacter infections. These pathogens were chosen because of the frequency or severity of the illnesses they cause, and because targeted interventions can have a major impact in reducing them. The implicated foods were divided into 17 categories for the analysis, and the method gives the greatest weight to the most recent five years of outbreak data (2015–2019).
