Surveillance for foodborne disease outbreaks – United States, 2014 : annual report
  • Description:
    This report includes foodborne disease outbreaks reported by February 17, 2016, in which the first illness occurred in 2014. Etiologic agents were reported as confirmed if predefined criteria were met;2 otherwise, they were reported as suspected. For outbreaks caused by a single confirmed or suspected etiology, etiologies were grouped as bacterial, chemical and toxin, parasitic, or viral. Multistate outbreaks were defined as outbreaks in which exposure to the implicated food occurred in more than one state or territory. Population-based outbreak reporting rates were calculated for each state using U.S. Census estimates of the 2014 state populations (http://www.census.gov/ popest). Multistate outbreaks were included in state population-based outbreak reporting rates by assigning one outbreak to each state that reported a case in the outbreak. Implicated foods were classified into 1 of 24 single-food categories if a single contaminated ingredient was identified or if all ingredients belonged to that category.3 Outbreaks attributed to foods that could not be assigned to one of these categories, or for which the report contained insufficient information for category assignment, were not attributed to any category.
