A COMPARISON OF HUMAN ILLNESS COST ESTIMATES FOR E. COLI 0157:H7 DISEASE IN THE UNITED STATES AND SCOTLAND

This paper explores methodological and demographical reasons for differences in estimated social costs from foodborne Escherichia coli O157:H7 between the United States and United Kingdom (UK). Depending on the evaluation method, estimated U.S. costs average $10,000-17,000/case while estimated costs for the largest reported UK milk-borne outbreak are $280,000/case.
