CDC launches improved online foodborne outbreak search tool
New maps, interactive features and search function provide two decades of data
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released a redesigned online tool making it easier to search data on foodborne disease outbreaks. The updated Foodborne Outbreak Online Database Tool (FOOD Tool) lets users search nearly 20 years of outbreak data by state, food, or germ.
Originally developed in 2009, the FOOD Tool includes national foodborne outbreak data reported to CDC from 1998 to 2014. New interactive features such as maps, graphs, and tables now allow users to search by specific foods and ingredients, view a “quick stats” display, and get case counts for multistate outbreaks.
