The Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration Hosts a Webinar on Foodborne Illness Source Attribution Estimates for 2013
October 6, 2017
The Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration (IFSAC) is hosting a webinar to discuss its latest report on updated foodborne illness source attribution estimates using outbreak data for 2013 for Salmonella, Escherichia coli O157, Listeria monocytogenes, and Campylobacter. During the webinar, experts will share results from the report and discuss IFSAC’s approach to analyzing outbreak data to estimate which foods are responsible for foodborne illnesses related to specific pathogens.
Date: Friday, October 20, 2017 at 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm (EDT)
Space is limited and participants are encouraged to register by October 18, 2017. Registered participants will receive a confirmation email with the agenda and detailed instructions for accessing the webinar. A recording and transcript will be posted to IFSAC's events page after the event.
IFSAC is a collaboration among the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The collaboration works to improve coordination of federal food safety analytic efforts and address cross-cutting priorities for food safety data collection, analysis, and use. Projects and studies aim to identify foods that are important sources of illnesses.
