The Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) tracks important illnesses transmitted commonly by food, generating information used to guide and monitor food safety policy and prevention efforts. FoodNet provides information that contributes to food safety efforts by estimating numbers of foodborne illnesses, monitoring trends in incidence of specific illnesses over time, attributing illnesses to specific sources and settings, and disseminating information. A collaborative program of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 10 state health departments, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS), and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), FoodNet conducts population-based active surveillance for laboratory-confirmed infections caused by 7 bacterial pathogens (Campylobacter, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli [STEC], Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia), 2 parasitic pathogens (Cyclospora and Cryptosporidium), and 1 syndrome (postdiarrheal hemolytic uremic syndrome [D+HUS]). This report describes final FoodNet surveillance data for Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Listeria, Salmonella, Shigella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157, STEC non-O157, Vibrio, Yersinia infections for 2011, D+HUS for 2010, and trends in incidence since 1996.
