Each year, 1 in 6 Americans gets sick by consuming contaminated foods or beverages
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans
(or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne
diseases. Reducing foodborne illness by just 10% would keep 5 million Americans from
getting sick each year. Preventing a single fatal case of E. coli O157 infection would
save an estimated $7 million. Foodborne diseases are an important public health burden
in the United States.
The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Extension Service has ServSafe certified county educators in Family and Consumer Sciences trained to deliver ServSafe ® workshops in various
