Food poisoning is caused by eating contaminated food that is handled or cooked incorrectly before it reaches your plate.

Researchers have identified more than 250 foodborne diseases. Most of them are caused by a bacteria, viruses, and parasites. However, harmful toxins and chemicals can also contaminate foods and cause food poisoning.
