Bill is a high-profile attorney, who’s screaming lawsuits against Chipotle after the chain’s infamous E. coli and norovirus outbreaks made a lot of buzz. He outlined certain foods he completely eliminated from his diet.
Winning over $600 million for his clients dealing with foodborne-illness cases, Bill Marler shares how his experiences convinced him that certain foods just aren’t worth the risks. Check this list of foods that scare our expert the most.
You would be surprised how common sprout outbreaks are, they make up for more than 30 bacterial outbreaks (among those are salmonella and E. coli) in the past twenty years. Marler mentions – “There have been too many outbreaks to not pay attention to the risk of sprout contamination”. “Those are products that I just don’t eat at all.”
Pre-washed and pre-cut fruits or greens
Marler was really passionate when he described just how much he avoids these comparing them to plague. In this case a few saved minutes on washing may seem nice, but unfortunately the fact that a huge amount of people handling and processing your food before it gets to your stomach means increased possibility for contamination, stay away from these, or take an extra minute to wash them up.
