The food safety subcommittee is made up of public health professionals dedicated to building epidemiology capacity for the detection and prevention of foodborne illness. The food safety subcommittee conducted an assessment of food safety epidemiology capacity in 2010, the findings and recommendations from which have been compiled into a summary report.
CSTE co-chairs the Council to Improve Foodborne Outbreak and Response (CIFOR), a multidisciplinary working group convened by CSTE and CDC in 2005 to increase collaboration and to reduce the burden of foodborne illness in the U.S. CIFOR is working on a number of projects, including a law project, an epidemiology-laboratory integrated reporting pilot project to more rapidly identify outbreaks, and a project to identify foodborne disease metrics.
