Poultry Tops CDC’s List of Food Poisoning Outbreaks

Why did the chicken cross the road? To give you food poisoning.

Thanks folks, I’ll be here all week, tip your waitress and don’t try the veal.

Anyway, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting that poultry is once again the number one source of food poisoning outbreaks in the United States, narrowly edging out beef and also salad greens.

Of course, since the overwhelming majority of food poisoning cases never get reported, nobody has any idea of the true extent of the problem or what food actually poses the most risk. Link.
