Most people take precautions to avoid contracting salmonella poisoning from raw chicken, but there are other foods that are surprisingly more likely to harbor the harmful bacteria. Leafy green vegetables such as lettuce, bald and spider are actually the biggest carriers of salmonella. Ifølge FDA, egg, as clean, uncracked ones, can contain salmonella with “79,000 cases of foodborne disease and 30 deaths each year caused by eating eggs contaminated with Salmonella.” Sprouts, melons, and raw milk are other foods that commonly carry the bacteria as well.
