Food borne illness is a serious public health threat problem. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 76 million foodborne illnesses occur in the United States each year, including 350,000+ hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths. Two recently published Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) reports showed that Salmonella spp., Campylobacter spp., Shigella spp., Cryptosporidium spp., and Shiga toxin Escherichia coli (STEC) O157 continue to be leading causes of both the number and incidence of laboratory-confirmed foodborne infections in the United States.
