Foodborne Illnesses And Their Effects

Every year, an estimated 76 million Americans suffer a foodborne illness, and nearly 5,000 die. Food poisoning is anything but a minor ailment. While most cases of food poisoning last only a few days, some are far more serious. Severe and untreated cases can result in serious illness or the death of a loved one. The elderly, infants, young children, and those with chronic illness or otherwise weakened immune systems are much more susceptible to serious injury or death.

According to a report by Ohio State University Professor Robert Scharff, the annual economic cost of foodborne illnesses in the United States is $152 billion.
