7 Common Foods That Can Give You Food Poisoning

Food poisoning is undoubtedly one of the most horrible situations, as anyone who has experienced it can attest to it. Being attentive about the foods we eat is vital given the current prevalence of diseases like cholera.

According to Healthline, here are a few typical items that can cause food poisoning.

1. Burgers

I'm talking about the beef stuffed in the burger. Food poisoning may develop from the burger's undercooked beef.

2. Leafy greens

It is crucial to make sure that leafy greens are thoroughly washed before eating because a lot of them are eaten raw, like in salads.

3. Left over rice

The spores develop into bacteria that can cause food poisoning if rice is left out at room temperature for a while after cooking.

4. Deli meats

Additional foods that can make you sick include ham, bacon, salami, and hot dogs. Processing and production of deli meats increases the risk of contamination with dangerous pathogens like Listeria and Staphylococcus.

5. Eggs

Even though they are a nutrient-dense food, eggs can cause food poisoning if eaten uncooked or undercooked. Salmonella is a hazardous bacteria that can cause food poisoning, and it is present in eggs.

6. Fish

The bacteria that live inside fish might produce the toxin known as histamine if the fish is not preserved properly at the proper temperature. Food poisoning results from this toxin, which is supposedly difficult to remove through typical cooking.

7. Unpasteurized milk and cheeses

Listeria is a bacteria that thrives in soft cheeses, raw milk, and unpasteurized milk. These foods should be completely avoided by pregnant women and other groups that have a high risk of contracting a foodborne illness. The risk of infection can be decreased by washing hands both before and after consuming unpasteurized meals and by limiting oneself to eating soft cheeses prepared from pasteurized milk.
