List of 10 Riskiest Foods

A new report exposes the risks associated with eating dairy products and vegetables.

A recent study released by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) counts down the 10 riskiest foods regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The list, released soon after The New York Times exposé on tainted beef, is made up of both animal-derived products (eggs, tuna, oysters, cheese, ice cream) and fruits and vegetables (leafy greens, potatoes, tomatoes, sprouts, berries). Leafy greens rank as the riskiest, mostly because of E. coli breakouts in 2006 caused by factory-farm runoff onto spinach. According to Caroline Smith DeWaal, food safety director of CSPI, meat and poultry were excluded from the list, because they are regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture, not the FDA.
