Jul. 30, 2012, Ottawa, ON – The Public Health Agency of Canada has launched its video series Something you ate?The four-part series explains how the Agency detects and investigates outbreaks of foodborne illness, also commonly known as food poisoning.

The first two episodes are now available.

Episode 1: Outbreak Response–The Big Picture (response summary)
Episode 2: Tracking the Source (epidemiological investigation)


The videos were developed to help Canadians understand how an investigation into outbreaks of foodborne illness unfolds. They can be viewed individually, but together they tell the full story of our outbreak response and explain how people can protect themselves against illness.

The videos will be released on the PHAC website and YouTube channel on a weekly basis. We invite you to watch and share them with your audiences through your social media networks as well as through traditional streams.

Each video will be supported by extra web material, including links to our new fact sheets on pathogens, interactive material and the Government of Canada food safety web portal.

Watch for new episodes on these dates:

August 3–Episode 3: Tales from the Lab (lab investigation)
August 10–Episode 4:  Protecting Yourself (food safety tips)
