Dangerous Bacteria

While the American food supply is among the safest in the world, the Federal government estimates that there are about 48 million cases of food borne illness annually-the equivalent of sickening 1 in 6 Americans each year. And each year these illnesses result in an estimated 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths.
