    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.
