Safety with Sprouts
When thinking of food safety in your kitchen this summer, raw sprouts
should not be left off your radar. Sprouts have been associated with foodborne
illnesses such as E. coli 0157:H7 and Salmonella. Make sure high risk
populations, young children, elderly people and those with compromised immune
systems avoid using sprouts on sandwiches or salads.
For Living Well in Wyoming food safety tips, contact your University of
Wyoming Extension Nutrition and Food Safety educator.
