The FDA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) have developed an online resource about the Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration (IFSAC) that highlights their work and creates an ongoing resource to share information with the public. The site, hosted by the CDC, includes information on the analyses and other activities of this tri-agency partnership.

Established in 2011, IFSAC seeks to improve coordination of federal food safety analytic efforts and address cross-cutting priorities for food safety data collection, analysis, and use. Projects and studies aim to identify foods that are important sources of illnesses. The current focus of IFSAC's activities is foodborne illness source attribution.
