  • Description:
    The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) is placing increased emphasis on foodborne illness investigation, control and prevention. This emphasis is based on the following: the MDPH s Working Group on Foodborne Illness Control (WGFIC), local board of health members and health department staff in Massachusetts who have come together at focus groups and meetings coordinated by the Division of Epidemiology and Immunization and the Food Protection Program, and the CDC s 1994 publication, Addressing Emerging Infectious Disease Threats: A Prevention Strategy for the United States. These sources point out the need for up-to-date information and increased technical assistance to the local health departments for prevention and control of infectious diseases, including foodborne illness. This reference manual is part of the MDPH s focus on providing more trainings and technical assistance for local boards of health and health department staff. The purpose of the manual is to guide local boards of health and health department staff through foodborne illness investigation and control. It is designed as a comprehensive reference covering both epidemiologic and environmental aspects of a foodborne illness investigation, and emphasizes the practical and necessary features of investigation and control. Contained within the manual are basic information, guidelines, recommendations and regulatory requirements. While this manual is targeted to board of health members and health department staff, other health professionals can also use the information to facilitate understanding of how local boards of health and health department staff operate, and how they themselves play a role in foodborne illness investigation and control.
