Environmental Health Checklists for Foodborne Illness Outbreaks

The Minnesota Food Safety Center of Excellence has developed three new checklists for environmental health specialists. The checklists provide guidance for EH staff responding to a suspected bacterial intoxication outbreak, a Campylobacter illness at a restaurant, and a Vibrio parahaemolyticus illness at a restaurant. They can be a useful resource for EH staff in the field to ensure that they are asking all the right questions, implementing appropriate controls measures, and gathering necessary information.

    I really like your Environmental Health Checklists for FBO’s. We (King County) developed similar organism specific investigation guides (Norovirus, Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, etc.). Let me know if you are interested in seeing them.
