SEARCA PBS 2005-12: Eat and Be Merry, Unless Your Food is Toxic - Policy Issues on Food Safety

Thousands get poisoned each day throughout the world as innocent looking and enticing foods find their way from the farm to the stomach. But why is this so? Unseen by the naked eyes, Salmonellosis bacteria sneak their way to the human stomach by contaminating raw meat, eggs, unpasteurized milk and cheese products. Found everywhere in the food chain and in the environment, salmonella-infected patients may experience mild or severe diarrhea, fever, and occasionally vomiting. Bloodstream infections can be quite serious, particularly in the very young or elderly.
