  • Description:
    "Food safety depends on strong partnerships. CDC and the regulatory agencies (the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] and the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service [FSIS]) play complementary roles in the federal food safety effort. State and local health departments also play critical roles in all aspects of food safety. CDC provides the vital link between illness in people and the food safety systems of government agencies and food producers. CDC does this by: Monitoring human illness--tracking the occurrence of foodborne diseases; Defining the public health burden of foodborne illness; Attributing illness to specific foods and settings; Investigating outbreaks and sporadic cases--managing the DNA 'fingerprinting' network for foodborne illness-causing germs in all states to detect outbreaks; Empowering state and local health departments; Targeting prevention measures to meet long-term food safety goals; Informing food safety action and policy--the new Food Safety Modernization Act and the egg safety regulation were driven in part by CDC data and investigative findings." - p.
