Foodborne Illness Outbreaks at Retail Establishments — National Environmental Assessment Reporting System, 16 State and Local Health Departments, 2014–2016
February 22, 2019
State and local public health departments investigate foodborne illness outbreaks and voluntarily report epidemiologic and laboratory data from their investigations to CDC through the Foodborne Disease Outbreak Surveillance System (FDOSS). In 2014, CDC launched the National Environmental Assessment Reporting System (NEARS) to complement FDOSS surveillance and to use these data to enhance prevention efforts. NEARS captures data that describe food preparation policies and practices and other characteristics that might contribute to the introduction or transmission of agents that cause foodborne illness. During 2014–2016, data were reported to NEARS on 404 foodborne illness outbreaks at retail establishments.
