The tri-agency collaborative identified four priority pathogens as the initial focus of their foodborne illness source attribution work:

  • Salmonella,
  • E. coli O157:H7,
  • Listeria monocytogenes, and
  • Campylobacter.

Based on the needs of each agency, CDC, FDA, and FSIS identified both short and long term needs related to foodborne illness source attribution, including:

  • Short-term needs that focus on attribution estimates for the four priority pathogens; and
  • Long-term needs that focus on plans for reducing uncertainty, improving data, and obtaining comprehensive estimates of foodborne illness source attribution.

Considering these needs, IFSAC designed several projects.

In addition, IFSAC has worked collaboratively with external groups on shared interests.

Learn about current analytic projects for improving attribution methods and estimates.
