http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-06-04/listeria-death-rate-shows-u-s-food-safety-shortcomings.html According to our ongoing survey - only around 25% of people who believe they have food poisoning go to a doctor, 75% tough it out.  So it's possible the number of people sickened from Listeria is even higher. Other point in the article is that there are some potential improvements coming in regs, sounds good.. : "The Obama administration proposed in January the first major regulations from the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act, which was to be the most sweeping overhaul of U.S. food oversight in 70 years when it passed. The Food and Drug Administration is developing the rules aimed at keeping people safe from listeria."
