Food can be contaminated in several ways:
Even when hands look clean, they still carry bacteria.
Meat and poultry drippings carry bacteria.
Uncovered coughs and sneezes spread bacteria.
Mishandling of food during preparation, cooking, and storage is often how foods become contaminated.
Most cases of food-borne illness are due to undercooking foods, storing foods at the wrong temperature, and/or poor personal hygiene.
