Common Foodborne Diseases Still a Threat!

For the past year and a half, the primary goals of many healthcare organizations have been centered around dealing with the pandemic. However, this does not mean that other illnesses have simply stopped being an issue in modern life. On the contrary, some have been thriving in the last few months. As recently as June 24, 2021, there have been 17 confirmed cases of E. coli infections caused by a brand of organic yogurt having become contaminated. Over half are children under the age of 10.

In addition, there have been three separate outbreaks of Salmonella in the past few months alone. There have been food contamination outbreaks related to packaged meat, dairy products, baking ingredients, and even vegetables in just the past year. This by itself demonstrates that the need for food testing is as high as it ever has been. Microbiological laboratories like Nova Biologicals monitor these situations in conjunction with health organizations like the CDC, who in turn make many of the food outbreaks public knowledge.

To stay informed on which products are being linked to foodborne pathogens, be sure to check out the CDC website (  for current news and health advisories.
