Abstract

In the United Kingdom, the 1980s saw a dramatic rise in the number of reported cases of food‐poisoning. Data provided by the Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre (CDSC) in London, indicated that formal notifications increased by more than 250% between 1980 and 1988. Table 1 shows what has been happening in England and Wales over this period. The provisional cumulative total for 1990 to mid‐August was over 28,000.
