Foodborne Disease Surveillance

The Foodborne Disease Surveillance team works to identify and decrease the risk to the public from foodborne illness. We do this by monitoring occurrences of bacterial pathogens and by responding to public complaints of possible foodborne outbreaks of disease. Protecting county residents from foodborne illness is best accomplished through cooperation between the Foodborne Disease Surveillance team, the Public Health Laboratory and Environmental Health Bureau of Consumer Protection's Food & Milk Program. Together, we are working to improve basic surveillance of foodborne diseases and to coordinate our response to outbreaks.
