  • Description:
    Known pathogens are estimated to cause 9.4 million illnesses each year in the United States.1 Although relatively few of these illnesses occur in the setting of a recognized outbreak, data collected during outbreak investigations provide insight into the pathogens and foods that cause illness. Public health officials, regulatory agencies, and the food industry can use these data to inform efforts to prevent foodborne illness. : An outbreak of foodborne disease is defined as the occurrence of two or more cases of a similar illness resulting from ingestion of a common food. CDC conducts surveillance for foodborne disease outbreaks in the United States through the Foodborne Disease Outbreak Surveillance System. Public health agencies in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and U.S. territories submit reports of outbreaks investigated by their agencies using a web-based platform, the National Outbreak Reporting System (http://www.cdc.gov/ nors/). This annual summary includes foodborne disease outbreaks reported by February 6, 2019, in which the first illness onset occurred in 2017. : Agencies use a standard form (https://www.cdc.gov/ nors/downloads/form-52-13.pdf ) to report foodborne disease outbreaks. Data requested for each outbreak include the reporting state; date of first illness onset; number of illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths; etiology; implicated food(s) and ingredient(s); locations of food preparation; and factors contributing to food contamination (see appendix). Patients who were hospitalized as a result of becoming ill during an outbreak and deaths that occurred among ill persons during an outbreak were attributed to that outbreak. : Suggested ditation: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
