Study Released on Food Poisoning in U.S. 76,000,000 Suffer Annually / 5,000 Die

The New York Times released a study today from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta that states that 76 million Americans suffer from food poisoning every year. I think seeing the actual number helps for emphasis: that’s 76,000,000 people. And this is really unbelievable… 5,000 people die every year from food poisoning. How could this happen here in our country where we have the safest food supplies in the world? This just goes to show that we need to be extra careful about food poisoning and look for ways we can prevent it.
