FS-1.1-FS-1.4 Slide 1

Objectives FS-1.1 and FS-1.4

SOURCE: Foodborne Disease Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet), CDC/NCEZID.
NOTE: Data are for the average number of cases per year of laboratory-confirmed Campylobacter species (objective FS-1.1) and Salmonella species (objective FS-1.4) infections per 100,000 population.

Whereas rates of Campylobacter infections showed almost no change from 2003–05 (12.7 per 100,000) to 2007–09 (12.8 per 100,000), rates of Salmonella infections increased 5.5% from 2003–05 to 2007–09, from 14.5 to 15.3 cases per year per 100,000 population.

FS-1.1-FS-1.4 Slide 2

Objectives FS-1.1 and FS-1.4

SOURCE: Foodborne Disease Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet), CDC/NCEZID.
NOTE: Data are for the average number of cases per year of laboratory-confirmed Campylobacter species (objective FS-1.1) and Salmonella species (objective FS-1.4) infections per 100,000 population.

Rates of Campylobacter and Salmonella infections varied by age. For example, in 2006–08, children aged 0–4 years had 24.7 cases per year of Campylobacter and 61.0 cases per year of Salmonella infections per 100,000 population. In comparison, older adults aged 75–84 had 11.1 cases per year of Campylobacter and 15.3 cases per year of Salmonella infections per 100,000 population.

FS-1.2-FS-1.3 Slide 1

Objectives FS-1.2 and FS-1.3

SOURCE: Foodborne Disease Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet), CDC/NCEZID.
NOTE: Data are for the average number of cases per year of laboratory-confirmed Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157:H7 (objective FS-1.2) and Listeria monocytogenes (objective FS-1.3) infections per 100,000 population.

Rates of Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes infections showed almost no change from 2003–05 to 2007–09.

FS-1.2-FS-1.3 Slide 2

Objectives FS-1.2 and FS-1.3

SOURCE: Foodborne Disease Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet), CDC/NCEZID.
NOTE: Data are for average number of cases per year of laboratory-confirmed Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157:H7 (objective FS-1.2) and Listeria monocytogenes (objective FS-1.3) species infections per 100,000 population.

Rates of Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes infections varied by age. For example, in 2006–08, children aged 0–4 years had 4.0 cases per year of Escherichia coli and 0.5 cases per year of Listeria monocytogenes infections per 100,000 population. In comparison, older adults aged 75–84 had 1.0 cases per year of Escherichia coli and 1.2 cases per year of Listeria monocytogenes infections per 100,000 population.
