Making Sense of Recent Cost-of-Foodborne-Illness Estimates
Sandra Hoffmann (au); Tobenna D. Anekwe (au)
Quantitative estimates of the economic and public health burden of foodborne illness, as well as the valuation of expected health benefits, are useful for evaluating the merit of food-safety regulations and assessing their effectiveness. Recent estimates of the cost offoodborne illnesses, based on U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) foodborne-disease figures, range widely. This variation could create confusion about the total cost burden of foodborne illnesses, as well as how different foodborne illnesses rankin terms of the health burdens they impose. Comparing these recent cost-of-foodborneillness estimates, the authors find that the two primary drivers of differences in these estimates are differences in the number of diseases each study evaluates and the valuation methods used. Differences in relative pathogen rankings were due more to the number of diseases included in the analysis than to the method used to value the impact of the illnesses. Figures.
