Health.com: 14 Types of Food That Can Make You Sick

Berries

Another common source of food poisoning is berries, including strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries.

The CDC traced an outbreak of hepatitis A in 2013 to a frozen berry mix. A 1997 outbreak that sickened thousands of children via school lunches was also traced to hepatitis A-contaminated frozen strawberries (possibly from a farm worker in Baja California, Mexico).

Other cases—linked to imported raspberries from Chile and Guatemala—have been caused by a germ called Cyclospora, which causes severe diarrhea, dehydrations, and cramps.
