According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chicken ranked as the most dangerous food with the highest rates of foodborne illness. The CDC reports that chicken was responsible for 10 percent of the 5,760 outbreaks analyzed between 2009 and 2015. With foodborne-related recalls becoming more common, people wonder how these outbreaks occur and what can be done to lower the risk of illness. Kansas State University food scientist Karen Blakeslee provides food safety tips that can help lower your risk of exposure to foodborne illness.

Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
