The Center for Foodborne Illness Research & Prevention is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing foodborne illness through research, education, advocacy and service. Founded in 2006 to help America create innovative, science-based solutions for the food challenges of the 21st Century.

http://www.foodborneillness.org/, CFI believes that it is imperative that federal, state and local government, as well as farmers; food processors/distributors/retailers; medical providers; educators; policy makers and consumers share the responsibility of building an environment that promotes food safety throughout the farm to fork continuum. No one sector can achieve this goal alone. CFI is dedicated to working together through research, education and advocacy to develop better food protections and ultimately improve public health.
