From The Wall Street Journal, "Food-Linked Infections Rose Last Year" by Bill Tomson:
The number of infection cases [from bacteria linked to food contamination] reported in a sample group of states increased 3% in 2012 from the previous year, an agency [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] calculation showed.
About 48 million people get sick from contaminated food every year, according to the CDC.
