The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued Directive 8080.3, which instructs personnel from FSIS, Office of Public Health Science on the procedures they are to follow when investigating foodborne illnesses potentially associated with FSIS-regulated meat, poultry, or processed egg products.

The directive also instructs personnel from the Office of Program Evaluation, and Enforcement Review, the Office of Field Operations, and the Office of International Affairs on the actions they are to take when assisting with an FSIS foodborne illness investigation.

This directive supplements, but is not intended to conflict with, procedures of the Consumer Complaint Monitoring System as specified in FSIS Directive 5610.1.
