"The food supply in the United States is among the safest in the world. However, when certain disease-causing bacteria or pathogens contaminate food, they can cause food-borne illness, often called “food poisoning.” The Federal government estimates that there are about 48 million cases of food-borne illness annually – the equivalent of sickening 1 in 6 Americans each year. And each year, these illnesses result in an estimated 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths." - FDA
