Ice Cream

I scream, you scream. We all scream from ice cream? Ice cream has been linked to 75 outbreaks caused by bacteria like Salmonella and Staphylococcus between 1990 and 2006.

One such outbreak occurred in 1994, when a batch of ice cream premix was transported in a truck that had carried nonpasteurized eggs, and then used to make ice cream without re-pasteurizing. In that instance, Salmonella sickened 224,000 people.

Infection can also occur when people make ice cream at home using raw eggs.
