Outbreak Investigation Reports

Outbreak Investigation Reports provide an overview of factors contributing to contamination in foodborne outbreaks. These reports summarize the outbreak and investigation and provide conclusions and recommendations to assist in future prevention efforts.

Each report contains three main sections:

  • Reason for the Investigation
  • Investigation Results
  • Requirements and/or Recommendations

Food safety is a shared responsibility that involves food producers, distributors, manufacturers, retailers, and regulators. FDA is committed to working with these stakeholders to advance this critical work.
