Looking for data on foodborne illness burden and trends? Check out the new and improved FoodNet Fast, CDC’s online toolbox for accessing information reported to the Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet).

  • Pathogen Surveillance Tool: See how rates of illness have changed in FoodNet’s surveillance area since 1996 for nine pathogens transmitted commonly through food: Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Listeria, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia.
  • Diagnostic Laboratory Practices Tool: Find out how diagnostic testing practices in FoodNet’s surveillance area have changed for 10 pathogens: Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Listeria, norovirus, Salmonella, STEC, Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia.
  • Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) Surveillance Tool: HUS is a life-threatening condition, most often caused by STEC infection. See how rates of pediatric HUS and STEC infection have changed in FoodNet’s surveillance area since 1997.

You can use FoodNet Fast to search data and see results displayed on interactive graphs and charts.
