Foodborne Illness

Man clutching stomach

Most people will experience a foodborne disease at some point in their lives. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. Foodborne illness is a preventable public health problem!

Almost half of all foodborne illnesses can be attributed to food that was prepared or handled at home. We hope the resources provided on this page will guide you and your family in preparing and serving food safely.
