Multistate Outbreaks

photo of a canteloupeWhen two or more people get the same illness and investigation shows it came from the same contaminated food or drink, the event is called a foodborne disease outbreak.

In 2013, CDC monitored between 29 and 41 potential food poisoning or related clusters each week, and investigated more than 220 multistate clusters. These investigations led to the identification of 50 confirmed or suspected vehicles of transmission and the recalls of a variety of foods including frozen pizza snacks, salads, chicken, ground beef, and tahini sesame paste.
