CDC has designated Colorado as one of five Integrated Food Safety Centers of Excellence (CoE) to help fulfill its role in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). After a competitive process, five state health departments and their affiliated university partners were selected and notified: Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Oregon, and Tennessee. With CDC's leadership, these Centers will provide technical assistance and training on epidemiological, laboratory, and environmental investigations of foodborne illness outbreaks and associated analyses. Centers will identify and implement best practices in foodborne diseases surveillance and will serve as a resource for public health professionals at state, local, and regional levels.
