The role and methods of descriptive and analytical epidemiology in the investigation of outbreaks of foodborne disease are described. The relationship between epidemiological and microbiological investigation is addressed, and the need for a sensitive surveillance system to detect outbreaks is shown. Examples are drawn from recent cases or important outbreaks of salmonellosis in England.
