    The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010 (FSMA), signed into law on January 4th, 2011, authorized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to create a diverse working group of experts and stakeholders to provide routine and ongoing guidance to improve foodborne illness surveillance systems in the United States. Accordingly, in fiscal year (FY) 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention established a FSMA Surveillance Working Group (FSMA-SWG) under the Board of Scientific Counselors, Office of Infectious Diseases (BSC/OID). This third annual report summarizes the FSMA-SWG’s activities and recommendations during FY 2014.

    This report describes the FY 2014 activities of the Food Safety Modernization Act Surveillance Working Group (FSMA-SWG) of the Board of Scientific Counselors, Office of Infectious Diseases (BSC/OID), at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This Working Group was established in FY 2012 under authorization by the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010 (FSMA). Membership comprises 21 experts representing local, state, and federal governments; academia; industry; and consumer groups (Appendix 1).

    During FY 2014, the Working Group reviewed, responded to specific questions, and provided guidance regarding 1) foodborne illness and outbreaks caused by norovirus and 2) antimicrobial resistance surveillance for foodborne illnesses. The Working Group also reviewed, discussed, and provided guidance on several other CDC FSMA-related projects to enhance foodborne surveillance. For reference, a summary of selected CDC activities conducted in FY 2014 to address FSMA is included in Appendix 2.
