Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in collaboration with the American Medical Association (AMA), announced the availability of two continuing medical education (CME) videos for physicians:

The Federal government estimates that there are about 48 million cases of foodborne illness, or food poisoning, annually – the equivalent of sickening 1 in 6 Americans each year. And each year, these illnesses result in an estimated 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths.
