spinachThis week the Center for Science in the Public Interest announced the 10 foods most likely to carry food-borne illness. Leafy greens—including lettuce and spinach—are the most dangerous. What else made the list?

Before you read this list, please note that the purpose of these findings is NOT to have consumers panic and change their eating habits. Rather, this information is intended to be used to lobby Congress to improve food safety programs and enforcement. Just something to keep in mind.

Nevertheless, this list is a little scary...

  • Eggs
  • Tuna
  • Oysters
  • Potatoes
  • Cheese
  • Ice cream
  • Tomatoes
  • Sprouts
  • Berries

Interesting to note: Many of these "dangerous" foods are healthy foods.

Have you ever had food poisoning? What did you eat that caused it? Any of these foods?
