Recent Rise Seen in Foodborne Diseases From Imports: CDC
Date:3/14/2012

, about 16 percent of all food consumed in the United States is imported, including up to 85 percent of seafood and up to 60 percent of fresh produce, the ERS report said.

Gould said her study likely underestimates the actual number of outbreaks caused by imported food because the origins of many foods that cause outbreaks are not known or not reported.

"We need better -- and more -- information about what foods are causing outbreaks and where those foods are coming from," Gould said. "Knowing more about what is making people sick, will help focus prevention efforts on those foods that pose a higher risk of causing illness."

Research presented at medical meetings should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has more about foodborne illness.
