You can use FoodNet Fast tools to search data and see results displayed on interactive graphs and charts.

  • Pathogen Surveillance Tool: See how rates of illness have changed in FoodNet’s surveillance area since 1996 for nine pathogens transmitted commonly through food: Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium *, Cyclospora, Listeria, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia.
  • Diagnostic Laboratory Practices Tool: Find out how diagnostic testing practices in FoodNet’s surveillance area have changed over time for 10 pathogens: Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium *, Cyclospora, Listeria, norovirus, Salmonella, STEC, Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia.
  • Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) Surveillance Tool: HUS is a life-threatening condition, most often triggered by STEC infection. See how rates of pediatric HUS and STEC infection have changed in FoodNet’s surveillance area since 1997.
  • Population Survey Tool: See how often people in FoodNet’s surveillance area eat particular foods and have other exposures linked to diarrheal illness, and compare exposures for different groups of people.

* As of January 1, 2018, FoodNet no longer conducts active surveillance for Cryptosporidium.
