The Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) is the principal foodborne- disease component of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Emerging Infections Program (EIP). FoodNet is a collaborative project involving CDC, 10 state health departments, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) and the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This report describes final surveillance data for Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Listeria, Salmonella, Shigella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157, STEC non-O157, Vibrio, Yersinia for 2009, HUS for 2008, and trends in incidence since 1996.
FoodNet was established in 1996 to conduct population-based active surveillance in five sites; Minnesota, Oregon, and selected counties in California, Connecticut, and Georgia. By 2004, the FoodNet surveillance area had expanded to include 10 sites: Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico, Oregon, and Tennessee, and selected counties in California, Colorado, and New York. The FoodNet surveillance area in 2009 included 46.8 million persons, representing 15.3% of the United States population. The sex, race, and ethnic distribution of the 2009 FoodNet surveillance population was similar to that of the United States population as whole, with the exception of the Hispanic population, which was under-represented.
