Millions of people get food poisoning every year, and thousands die. The annual economic cost is in the billions. The majority of cases are unreported due to mild illness, limited public knowledge of reporting procedures, or the absence of laboratory confirmation of disease. Reporting helps improve foodborne disease burden estimation, timely outbreak detection, and evaluation of policies.
