The bacteria that cause food poisoning are difficult to detect by a food's appearance, taste or smell. Whether eating at home or eating out, there are simple steps you can take to "eat defensively" and avoid getting sick.

The guidelines, based on recommendations of the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) fall into three basic categories:

  • Guidelines for the safe purchase of food.
  • Guidelines for the safe handling, cooking and storage of food.
  • How to dine out safely.

Each of these subjects are discussed separately in the documents in "To Learn More."


Even in the U.S., water may contain bugs that can be a danger if your immune system is low - such as from chemotherapy or radiation.

Make sure your local water is safe. If it isn't, take appropriate safety precautions.
