Food Poisoning Expert Reveals 6 Things He Refuses To Eat

Having spent over 20 years working on food-poisoning lawsuits, Bill Marler simply doesn't eat certain foods anymore.

The attorney, who's litigating suits against Chipotle after the chain's E. coli and norovirus outbreaks, was cited in an article by Health Insider from BottomLine outlining what foods he's cut from his diet.

Having won more than $600 million for clients in foodborne-illness cases, Marler says that his experiences convinced him that these foods aren't worth the risks.

Here are the foods that scare this expert the most:

  1. 1.Raw oysters.
  2. Marler says that he has seen more foodborne illnesses linked to shellfish in the past five years than in the two preceding decades. The culprit: warming waters. As global waters heat up, they produce microbial growth, which ends up in the raw oysters consumers are slurping down.

  3. 2. Precut or prewashed fruits and veggies.
