Apr 10, 2009 12:06 PM
While there have been several significant Salmonella outbreaks during the past several years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the incidence of the most common foodborne illnesses has changed very little over the past three years.
A 10-state report found that these illnesses didnít change considerably when compared to the previous three years (2005-07).
The CDC considers these states - California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon and Tennessee - to be representative of the entire US population.
The report, Preliminary FoodNet Data on the Incidence of Infection with Pathogens Transmitted Commonly Through Food - 10 States, United States, 2008, can be found at www.cdc.gov/mmwr.
