FOOD SAFETY:

.

The Food and Drug Administration is currently investigating four outbreaks of foodborne illnesses.

There are not many new details about the outbreaks that were reported to the agency since its update last week. The following information was included in the investigation:

An Outbreak Alert Including a recall for Salmonella Thompson-related seafood.
An investigation was conducted on-site, as well as the collection of samples and analysis to determine the source of Listeria monocytogenes.
An on-site inspection was initiated in response to the outbreak of Salmonella Oranienburg.

According to the FDA’s Wednesday information, no information has been released about which foods are being traced and what sites are being inspected.

The table below shows ongoing outbreak investigations being handled by FDA’s CORE Response Team . There are many stages to the investigations. While some outbreaks are still in the early stages of investigations, others have more information and may be close to completion. This table shows only active investigations.

The Food and Drug Administration will issue Public Health Advisories for outbreak investigations that resulted in “specific, concrete, and actionable steps consumers — such as throwing away or avoiding certain foods — to protect themselves,” according the outbreak table page.

Not all recalls or alerts lead to an outbreak of foodborne disease. Not all outbreaks lead to recalls.

Outbreak investigations which do not yield specific, actionable steps to consumers may not be conclusive in identifying a source or reveal any contributing factor, according CORE’s outbreak table. CORE officials have stated that FDA will provide a summary of its findings if a source and/or contributing factors is identified.
