Fun Facts: The Effectiveness of the FDA and the USDA

I have no commentary for this. I think that the numbers will speak for themselves.

Average Number of cases of foodborne illnesses in the United States: 76 million (or 26 people in every 100)

Average number of cases of foodborne illnesses in Austrailia: 2 million (or 10 out of every 100 citizens)

Average Number of cases of foodborne illnesses in Canada: 2 million (or 6 people out of every 100)

Average number of foodborne illnesses in France: 750,000 cases (pdf file and en francais) (or 1.2 out of every 100 people).
