Summary

Similar to other diseases, the severity of the foodborne illness varies with the type and the amount of exposure to the causative microorganism, as well as the disease-fighting potential of the affected individual. Foodborne illnesses might manifest as acute diarrhea, nausea, etc., which usually resolves within 7 to 10 days; or as chronic and potentially fatal diseases such as botulism or typhoid fever. Thus, there is a critical need to adopt appropriate measures that correspond to these variable conditions to maximize food safety and minimize the transmission of foodborne illnesses. A competent public health surveillance system should be implemented by the Governmental and related organizations to identify impending outbreaks in order to facilitate effective policies and goals (6, 7). Such systems help control and prevent extensive transmission by collecting and analyzing epidemiological and clinical data that provide guidelines to take appropriate measures.
