Food Detective Work

Foodborne illnesses sicken some 48 million people in the US each year.

The federal Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration studied nearly 1,000 foodborne outbreaks—mainly from 2008 to 2012—to identify foods that frequently transmit E. Coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter and Listeria. 

Federal food health officials say that data from the new report may be used to identify priorities and develop new regulations and performance standards.
