The food-borne zoonoses control in primary production - concerning bacterial zoonotic agents - resulted in the decreasing of human infections in the EU. Said practice agrees with the One Health Initiative, to which the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) adhere in the aim to integrate human health, animal health and environmental protection; when considered separately, indeed, these areas are unable to faithfully reflect epidemiological intersections. The results achieved through the National Control Programs (NCPs) concerning bacterial food-borne zoonoses in primary production - joined with monitoring and communicating systems activated by ECDC about human infectious diseases and by European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) about food safety - can be expressed in considerably decreasing the case number of human brucellosis and zoonotic tuberculosis, halving human salmonellosis cases, controlling the emerging monophasic S. Typhimurium variant and the on-going epidemic salmonellosis spread in different Member States. On the other hand, bacterial food-borne outbreaks increased in the EU when not involved in NCPs. Open Access availability of EFSA-ECDC reports expands the value of the complex system finalized to the protection of European consumers. The paper aims to deliver an analysis concerning the results obtained in the EU. Moreover, it refers to EFSA-ECDC reports as instruments fitting the continuous updating of the relevant issues and it provides prominent lists of related regulations and websites.
