Lethal Effects of Listeriosis on Vulnerable Populations: Law Aims to Help

Consumers rank food safety as the most important food policy issue they expect government to address, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a report indicating the incidence and fatality of listeriosis in the United States is not uncommon. Registered dietitian nutritionists have a role in protecting patients and clients from this often deadly infection.

The CDC report indicates that nationwide nearly 1,700 cases of listeriosis occurred in the last two years; of those infected, 21 percent died. Most cases occurred among older adults. The report calls for prevention targeting higher-risk groups and control of Listeria monocytogenes contamination in foods.

The 2010 Food Safety Modernization Act called on the CDC to strengthen foodborne illness surveillance and outbreak response. The CDC launched a collaborative network called FoodCore to develop methods to make outbreak detection and response faster, and the Integrated Food Safety Centers of Excellence to provide technical assistance and training of public health staff in other states.

It is the Academy's position that the public has a right to a safe food and water supply. The Academy continues to work with member experts to draft comments on the proposed rule authorized under the FSMA that will overhaul the nation's food safety system.
