Dangerous Foods

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

This section provides information on different sources and types of food poisoning, including E. coli, Listeria, Norovirus, and Salmonella.
