Bad Green Vegetables

The Friday File: 2.2 million Americans get sick annually from contaminated leafy vegetables. That represents 23% of all food-borne illness. Fruits, vegetables and nuts sicken 4.4 million persons, beef, pork and poultry cause 2.1 million illnesses and dairy products, another 1.3 million. As for deaths, the pathogens on poultry are particularly deadly, accounting for 19% of all fatalities. I’m taking no chances and will be subsisting on marshmallows and Doritos.
