New Patient Video Stories Show Seriousness of Foodborne Illness

CDC’s Division of Foodborne, Waterborne, and Environmental Diseases has produced a new video series, “Was It Something I Ate?,” which presents stories of people who developed serious enteric (intestinal) infections from food or animal contact.

The stories are from families with children who developed Salmonella infection from eating contaminated chicken or contact with backyard poultry, and from a CDC veterinarian who investigated an outbreak linked to working with farm animals.

These stories highlight the importance of preventing infections from food or animal contact through efforts by industry, government, and the public.
