About the Cover

Approximately 11% of foodborne outbreaks caused by Clostridium perfringens occur in correctional facilities. This issue’s cover article investigates an outbreak caused by C. perfringens infection and intoxication at a county correctional facility. Based on estimates and projection calculations, the outbreak sickened 250–666 inmates. While four different food items—chicken taco meat mixture, cheese sauce, rice, and beans—tested positive for C. perfringens enterotoxin, outbreak investigation findings point to the chicken taco meat mixture as the culprit.
