Bacteria Contamination Found In Nearly All Sectors Of The Food Supply

October 6, 2009: 05:42 AM EST
Thanks to recent news coverage, most people in the U.S. are aware of the dangers of eating bacteria-contaminated meat products such as beef and poultry. But fewer consumers are likely to know that other food products contaminated during the preparation process, including ice cream and berries, have made people sick. According to a Center for Science in the Public Interest report, leafy greens, eggs, and tuna are the riskiest foods after beef and poultry. Oysters, potatoes, and cheese are also on the list. “Unfortunately, the hazards now come from all areas of the food supply,” the CSPI says.
