CDC’s estimates of the burden of foodborne illness in the United States provide the most accurate picture of known pathogens and unspecified agents causing foodborne illness in the United States. By estimating the burden of foodborne illness and attributing illnesses to specific food sources, CDC, regulatory agencies, industry, consumer groups, and others can better target prevention measures and improve food safety in the United States.

Annual number of food related illnesses in the US: 76 Million. Annual number of food related hospitalizations in the US: 325,000. Annual number of food related deaths in the US: 5,000. Number of annual deaths due to Salmonella, Listeria, and Toxoplasma: 1,800.
