Dangerous Foods

Food poisoning (also called “ food-borne illness") is caused by consuming foods contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, or other food-borne pathogens.

While FDA and USDA regulations try to prevent food from becoming tainted in the first place, and food product recalls strive to prevent tainted foods from reaching consumers, food contamination continues to be a problem.
