The CDC reports that every year, 1 out of 6 Americans become ill from a food-borne illness such as E.coli, listeria and salmonella. Your odds of contracting one of these gastrointestinal delights increases if you eat any of the food items on the CDC’s list of 11 most contaminated foods. Some won’t surprise you, but some will!

128,000 Americans are hospitalized every year for a food borne illness, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention. 1 out of 6 of us will just get sick from E.coli, listeria or salmonella. Given the general public’s ongoing concern and the recent news stories about ground turkey products being contaminated with fecal matter, the CDC has released a list of the 11 most risky foods that we eat every day. Some like meat and leafy greens probably won’t surprise you, but lovers of eggs, cheese, potatoes and berries take note! They made the list as well.

Check out the complete list and how you can still eat these foods safely here.

Were you shocked by some of the foods on the list? How many of those foods do you eat or feed your family?
