Poultry Is No. 1 Source of Food Poisoning

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has reported that poultry (chicken and turkey) are the leading cause of foodborne illness, and accounted for 17% of food poisoning cases. Beef was close behind at 16%, followed by leafy vegetables at 14%. Most of these foodborne illnesses are preventable by using basic common sense steps for cleaning, storing and cooking.

PositiveTip: Always remember to properly clean, separate, cook, and chill when handling, cooking, and storing foods.
