You will be diagramming the course and impact of a real world foodborne illness outbreak, choosing one of the outbreaks noted in these assignment instructions. Your diagram will be a one page infographic that visually identifies and explains the way the outbreak occurred, from source to victims.
In short – your infographic should be a one page document that shows graphically – using images and a few short explanations – the way a foodborne illness was transmitted from the source to the victim. That is – begin at the beginning. What food item became contaminated by a pathogen and caused the illness? How did that pathogen contaminate the food, and why/how were the victims served that food? There are safe food preparation practices that can prevent many foodborne illness outbreaks – what was the critical error that caused the contaminated food item to be served and cause illness?
The infographic must include the information noted below.
Name of the foodborne illness outbreak (the illness it caused)
Cause of the outbreak (virus, bacteria, parasite, etc.) – this is the actual pathogen
The path from source to victim, including the number of victims
The CRITICAL point where the outbreak could have been prevented must be identified. Identify if this was caused by a grower/producer, manufacturer, restaurant error, or something else.
A precaution (if possible) that would have prevented this outbreak
You may use any of the real world outbreaks noted below for this infographic. If you wish to use a different outbreak that is not listed below, please contact your instructor for approval. You will have to research the specific outbreak in order to find the necessary information to complete the infographic and include all the required information. Hint: The CDC has very good information beyond what the web can provide for you – you must use at least two sources. https://www.cdc.gov/foodsafety/outbreaks/multistate-outbreaks/outbreaks-list.html
The sources must be reliable, academic resources. For tips on finding academic resources, please visit the student academic resource center in the library. https://www.apus.edu/apus-library/online-research/search/getting-started.html
