The Food Safety Research Consortium, a multi-disciplinary collaboration to improve public health, received funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES) to develop a conceptual framework for prioritizing opportunities to reduce risk based on an understanding of the integrated and systems-wide approach necessary to reduce foodborne illness. Information, discussion and feedback from collaborating institutions, researchers and other stakeholders at four workshops provided valuable input to the development of the framework. The conceptual framework includes approaches for evaluating the cost, effectiveness, and benefits of risk-reduction interventions and will guide future data collection and the creation of priority-setting tools for decisionmakers in food safety, public health, and the private sector.
