FoodNet summarizes information collected through active surveillance of eight pathogens twice a year.

Preliminary data from the previous year are published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)  each spring. Final data are summarized in the FoodNet Annual Report, which is released later in the year when updated census information becomes available.

FoodNet periodically summarizes information collected from the population survey in the Atlas of Exposures.
