CDC’s food safety report card: no happy news
The CDC has just issued its latest report on foodborne illness and food safety progress from 2006 to 2013.
It’s report has a couple of frowny faces—Campylobacter and Vibrio cases are up—and nothing else has changed.
Laboratory diagnoses of other foodborne microbial illnesses are also rising.
The food industry needs to do a better job of producing safe food.
Let’s hope the new food safety rules go into effect soon and get followed.
