Food Borne Illnesses Caused by Imported Food


I have a student who is looking for Canadian data on "food safety outbreaks caused by imported food". I have offered 'Estimates of Food-borne illness in Canaada" and CFIAs list of non-compliant imported food but have not found data on food-borne illnesses or outbreaks caused by imported food.


I contacted subject matter and we don’t have this information unfortunately. As recommended by subject matter, PHAC does have information on food borne illnesses – it would not hurt to check their site.
