Two foods that can cause food poisoning

Food poisoning is illness caused by bacteria or other toxins in food, typically with vomiting and diarrhea. Two foods that can give you food poisoning are unpasteurized dairy and eggs.

Pasteurization is the process of heating a liquid or food to kill harmful microorganisms. According to healthline, "between 1993 and 2006, there were more than 1,500 cases of food poisoning, 202 hospitalizations and two deaths in the us resulting from drinking milk or eating cheese made unpasteurized." This shows that unpasteurized dairy is a high risk of food poisoning.

Another food that can give you food poisoning is eggs. According to cdc.gov, "The inside of eggs that appear normal can contain a germ called Salmonella that can make you sick, especially if you eat raw or lightly cooked eggs." This show that you need to cook eggs before eating them.
