E.Coli

E. Coli is a bacteria found in water and food, including sprouts and undercooked beef. This foodborne illness causes people to have severe diarrhea after consuming food that has been contaminated. E-coli can be transferred between people if an individual has traces of the bacteria on their hands.

Listeria

Listeria is a bacteria that causes a foodborne illness called Listeriosis. Unlike other bacteria, Listeria can survive at very low temperatures ranging from O°F to 50°F. Many refrigerators fall within this range making it possible for the bacteria to grow in a refrigerator and contaminate food. Listeria is very dangerous because it can be passed from a mother to a child while pregnant or giving birth. It is recommended that certain refrigerated foods be heated prior to eating to help reduce the risk of Listeriosis.

Hepatitis A

The virus, Hepatitis A, is one of five types of hepatitis that harm the liver. Every year in the United States, approximately one hundred people die due to Hepatitis A-related liver problems. Up to 50,000 people are infected annually with the virus which is spread through contact with an infected person or when food or water comes in contact with an infected person.

Salmonella

Salmonella is a very serious and common bacteria that causes foodborne illness. There are over 2,000 different types of Salmonella bacteria. Salmonella can be found in many meat or meat products, such as pork, beef, poultry, dairy, eggs, and even vegetables and fruit. In the United States as many as 5,000 people die annually due to Salmonella.

Botulism

Botulism is a foodborne illness caused by the deadly bacteria called "Clostridium botulinum." It can be found in dirt, water, and the air. Botulism typically results from bacteria growing in canned goods, such as canned vegetables and meats. To help prevent Botulism, discard any old or bulging canned goods.

Shigella

Shigella is a germ that causes a foodborne illness called "Shigellosis" and can be found in the intestines of humans. Shigellosis is spread when an infected person has germs are on their hands and touches another individual, infecting them with severe diarrhea.
