This symposium will be the annual foodborne disease outbreak symposium the Control of Communicable Foodborne Disease has sponsored for several years. The specific outbreak updates to be presented will be selected in December or January to make them as current as possible. We are considering including the 2012 Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak associated with cantaloupe from Indiana and an outbreak from outside from North America. For the outbreaks outside North America, we are considering the S. Stanley outbreak with illnesses in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and Poland that is likely linked to turkey.
