The Costs of Human Salmonellosis Attributable to Pork: A Stochastic Farm-to-Fork Analysis

Few farm-to-table analyses of the risk pathways for foodborne illnesses exist, and no such analysis exists for the case of salmonellosis and pork products. This paper presents a Monte Carlo simulation model of the US pork system and the transmission pathways of Salmonella. For the year 2000, we estimate the cost of illness attributable to porkborne Salmonella at $45.7 million, with an estimated 43,505 cases of salmonellosis attributable to pork occurring annually.
