The Retail Food Safety Regulatory Association Collaborative (RFSRAC) has compiled a resource library for retail food regulatory professionals to support effective foodborne illness outbreak investigations. The resources include trainings, printable materials, and guidance documents that cover multiple areas of foodborne illness outbreak investigating, such as interviewing, sampling, pathogen-specific information, public communications, and after-action reports.
The development of the resource library was informed by the results of an assessment conducted in 2021 by the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) and RFSRAC partners. The resource library webpage also features a submission form for additional resources to be uploaded for consideration.
The resource library has been released during National Food Safety Education Month 2022.
