Sara Chodosh, assistant editor at Pop Science, discusses a new study that finds eggs and chicken might be the least likely culprits when it comes to salmonella poisoning. The new study finds that it is in fact fruits and leafy green vegetables that cause most illnesses from salmonella. But that does not mean you can't catch it from raw eggs or chicken. The food-borne illnesses that come from poultry can be much more severe, however, and are more likely to cause death. The problem, Chodosh notes, is trying to solve the problem when it comes to fruits and vegetables. If salmonella is found in fruit, there is no good way to know whether it has bacteria, especially since most fruits are not cooked.
