What are the most common types of food-borne illnesses?

Food-borne illnesses, or food poisoning, are a common occurrence and are usually quite painful for anyone who has the misfortune of contracting them. Unfortunately, far too many people contract food-borne illnesses due to the negligence or carelessness of a food provider, such as a restaurant. Some of the most common types of food poisoning include:

  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • Botulism
  • E. Coli
  • Toxoplasmosis
  • Listeriosis

The symptoms of food poisoning include stomach cramps, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and fever. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the 3 biggest sources of food poisoning are leafy greens, eggs, and tuna.

No one should have to worry that eating their favorite foods will cause harm to come to them, but, unfortunately, food safety is often ignored by those who are responsible for serving food to the public.
