Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration (IFSAC) Webinar: Are Outbreak Illnesses Representative of Sporadic Illnesses?
FDA partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) in 2011 to form the Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration (IFSAC). This tri-agency partnership focuses on projects related to attribution of foodborne illnesses.
IFSAC presented a webinar on progress toward attributing foodborne illnesses to food sources on Friday, January 10, 2014. The purpose of the webinar is to describe the most recent activities of the IFSAC. As part of the webinar, presenters shared an analysis for comparing the characteristics of illnesses associated with foodborne outbreaks with those that are not linked to outbreaks.
This was the second webinar in the IFSAC Webinar Series. View a recording of the First IFSAC Webinar: Improving the Categories Used to Classify Foods Implicated in Outbreaks.
If you were unable to attend the webinar, a recording of the presentation will be posted online in the near future.
