      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 in the United States. FoodNet contributes to food safety efforts by providing data used to estimate the burden of foodborne illness in the United States, monitoring changes in incidence of specific illnesses over time, attributing illnesses to specific sources and settings, and disseminating information on enteric diseases. Foodnet is a collaborative program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 10 state health departments, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS), and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), FoodNet conducts population-based active surveillance for laboratory- confirmed infections caused by seven bacterial pathogens (Campylobacter, Listeria, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli [STEC], Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia), two parasitic pathogens (Cyclospora and Cryptosporidium), and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This report describes final FoodNet surveillance data for infections caused by Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Listeria, Salmonella, STEC O157, STEC non-O157, Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia for 2015, HUS for 2014, and changes in incidence of these conditions over time.

      Starting with two states and 12 counties in 1996, FoodNet’s surveillance area (https:// has grown to include 15% of the United States population, approximately 48 million people.
