Pathogens EDEB staff members track include Clostridium botulinum, Campylobacter, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli, Listeria, Salmonella, Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia. EDEB staff routinely collect and analyze surveillance data, publish and present findings, and collaborate with partners to improve the branch’s nine surveillance systems. EDEB is organized into five teams: Analytics, the Foodborne Disease Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet), the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS), the National Surveillance of Bacterial Foodborne Illnesses (NST), and the National Outbreak Reporting System (NORS). The NORS Team collects approximately 800 foodborne and animal contact outbreak reports each year and analyzes them to monitor disease trends and to better understand the sources of enteric disease infections. Outbreak surveillance reports also inform investigations of new outbreaks and the creation of prevention measures and policies by providing insight into the pathogens, vehicles, populations, and circumstances that have been associated with foodborne disease or animal contact outbreaks.
