Hands stacked on top of each other

IFSAC Coordinates analyses from three federal agencies on foodborne illness source attribution.

Federal agencies and food safety experts rely on attribution to inform strategic planning and risk-based decision-making, estimate benefits of interventions, and evaluate the impact of interventions. By bringing together data from CDC, FDA, and FSIS, and by developing sound analytical methods, IFSAC scientists can improve estimates of the sources of foodborne illness.

  • Address the challenges posed by foodborne illness source attribution.
  • Work collectively to:
    • Analyze and interpret human surveillance and food contamination data;
    • Share data and methods; and
    • Monitor progress toward the goal of preventing foodborne illness.


  • Identify, plan, and conduct selected food safety and foodborne illness analytic projects recognized as high priority by all three agencies.
    • Foodborne illness source attribution is the current and sole focus of IFSACā€™s activities.
  • Improve coordination of federal food safety analytic efforts.
  • Address cross-cutting priorities for food safety data collection, analysis, and use.
