Dangerous Foods: 3 Foods That Might Make You Sick

Here’s a sickening stat: The FDA estimates around 48 million Americans get food poisoning every year. TheList's Bradley Hasemeyer spoke with Life Time Fitness's registered dietician, Julie Brown for a list of culprits you wouldn't expect.

She recommends you wash all your produce including those bags of leafy greens.
