    Please ask the CDC for their estimate of how many of the 380,000 nursing home residents who died in 2015 from an infection acquired in their care-facility, can be attributed to foodservice? What if it were as little as 1 %? That would equal 3,800 deaths for 2015 and more concerning is that the CDC predicts a repeat for 2016.
