Food-borne illness, also called food poisoning, is a common experience. Food can become contaminated at any given stage in its journey from the farm to the dinner plate, and many people end up with an upset stomach at some point or another. Unfortunately, some food poisoning can be more serious, causing painful or even deadly illnesses in those who consume the contaminated food.

Types of Food-borne Illness
Food poisoning is usually characterized by individual symptoms or a combination of symptoms like cramping, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and upset stomach. The most common types of pathogens that contaminate food include:
- E. Coli
- Hepatitis A
The source of contamination can be anything from bacteria spread during the slaughter of meat, the use of contaminated water used to wash vegetables, or the improper use of cutting boards to cut both raw meat and other food products.
