During the growth season, insects, toxic substances in the soil or water, and inadequate worker sanitation can cause food poisoning. After being picked, fruits and vegetables pass through multiple hands, increasing the risk of infection. Contamination can occur after the product is purchased, during preparation, or due to inadequate food storage.
