High Risk Groups

Anyone can develop a foodborne illness, but older adults, pregnant women, newborns and people with certain conditions are at greater risk. People in these groups need to be careful about the foods they eat. They may have a weakened or undeveloped immune system. This makes them more likely to become ill from some types of food.

Protection is easy with these simple guidelines:

  • Prepare and store food properly.
  • Use a thermometer to make sure cooked foods reach the correct temperature.
  • Avoid eating foods more prone to carry harmful bacteria.
  • Wash your hands often.
