Little progress made in controlling US foodborne illness.

The CDC Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) reported a total of 17,883 laboratory-confirmed cases of infection in the 10 FoodNet surveillance areas during 2007. Although significant declines in the incidence of certain foodborne pathogens have occurred since 1996, these declines all occurred before 2004. Incidence of Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, and E. coli O157 infections remains highest among children aged <5 years. The Lancet infectious disease. 2008;8(6).
