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

Salmonella Newport outbreak – October 2020 – U.S. and Canada
