Council to Improve Foodborne Outbreak Response (CIFOR):
Foodborne Illness Response Guidelines for Owners, Operators and Managers of Food Establishments

The CIFOR Industry Guidelines provide step-by-step approaches to important aspects of outbreak response such as preparation, detection, investigation, control, and follow-up. The Guidelines also describe key information to assist Industry in understanding what to expect when first notified of potential illnesses and provides tools to help guide Industry through the process. 

By using the Guidelines and its tools, Industry can take an active and educated role in outbreak response and investigation thereby reducing negative health impact to the public and negative economic impact to their businesses.
