from Food Safety News

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is out with new data on outbreaks of foodborne illness, reporting statistics from 2009-2015 when outbreaks sickened more than 100,000 people. Out of the 100,939 people who were confirmed with food poisoning from various pathogens during that time, 5,699 had to be admitted to hospitals and 145 died.

Editor's note: Advancing food safety is the number one goal of the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI). This goal includes doubling down on Listeria monocytogenes prevention and control by assisting AFFI members in enhancing their best food safety practices, advocating for reasonable government policies and educating consumers on the importance of following cooking instructions. more
