Slideshow: Multistate Foodborne Illness Outbreaks

The CDC Expert Commentary recently released a slideshow highlighting a limited, but dangerous pattern of foodborne illness impacting multiple states, at one time. The post illustrates a series of such instances occurring throughout 2015, which also accounted for more than half of the nation’s deaths reported as a cause of foodborne illness. Notable contaminated food resulting in multistate outbreaks includes ice cream, raw vegetables, sprouted nut butters, and Mexican-style restaurant meals. View the full slideshow, here.

The CDC Expert Commentary is a series of commentary, interviews, and visual slideshows produced through a partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Medscape. The purpose of this content is to provide CDC guidance to healthcare professionals on pertinent health topics.
