There are a ton of reasons as to why healthy eating can actually lead to food borne illness. There are many people who are trying to eat healthy for a multitude of reasons. They want to achieve a certain body image and they know that having a good diet is a huge part of that entire process. With that being said, this foodborne illness rising rate could be a part of this. Healthy food that is not natural is not always the best.
- It’s really ironic that produce and fresh food that are healthier to eat carry a higher incidence of food safety risk.
- One notable example this year of food borne illness across restaurant chains was romaine lettuce tainted with E. Coli that was shipped across the country.
- Because restaurant chains make use of vegetables and ingredients that are rarely cooked, a higher incidence of risks have been reported.
“Consumers who eat fresh, ready-to-eat foods face a higher foodborne illness risk than they’d have eating burgers and fries.”
