Are food contamination epidemics on the rise? Below is a chart of microbial food epidemics in the US from 1993 to 2008. The chart was created by Dr. Phillip H. Howard, who is an associate professor with Michigan State University. Dr. Howard says the timeline only includes large epidemics that affected multiple States. Dr. Howard also mentions that the data is very incomplete due to under-reporting (i.e. it is probably much worse).
