Be Safe, Not Sorry
How food is purchased, stored and prepared is important to your health. Most foodborne diseases are infections caused by a variety of bacteria, viruses and parasites.
The Center for Disease Control estimates that each year, 48 million people get sick from a foodborne illness; 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die.
People who are most at risk are pregnant women, young children, older adults and those with weakened immune systems as a result of diabetes, kidney or liver disease or chemotherapy/radiation treatments.
