Les toxi-infections alimentaires collectives en France entre 2006 et 2008

Abstract : Between 2006 and 2008, 3,127 foodborne outbreaks were reported in France to health authorities. They affected 33,404 persons, of which 2,302 were admitted to hospital and 15 deceased. A pathogenic agent was isolated from human or food specimen in 26,5% of these outbreaks. The number of reported outbreaks almost doubled between 2006 and 2008 (period during which the reporting system was reinfoced) compared to the three previous years. This increase is linked to an increase of the outbreaks for which no agent could be confirmed or suspected. Salmonella represented almost half of the confirmed outbreaks, S Typhimurium representing 40% of Salmonella outbreaks. A decrease of the number of Salmonella-related outbreaks since 2001 has been observed. Among suspected outbreaks, staphylococcal enterotoxin- related outbreaks were predominant. Enteric virus-related outbreaks represented 7,4% of all confirmed outbreaks, and 16,2% of all patients in this category.
