Some people are actually susceptible to food poisoning. They are more likely to get sick, and if they do, their sickness can be very serious. These folks include pregnant women, young children, older adults and people with chronic illnesses, according to FoodSafety.gov.
The good news is you can avoid your chances of getting food poisoning by skipping certain foods, says the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Here's a list of foods to just say no to, according to Home Food Safety:
Runny poached eggs
Caesar salad dressing
Raw or unpasteurized milk/cheese
Some soft cheeses, such as Brie, blue-veined cheese and queso fresco
Refrigerated smoked fish
Unpasteurized/refrigerated pate or meat spreads
Deli salads with ham, chicken and seafood salad
Raw sprouts, including alfalfa, clover and radish sprouts
Unpasteurized fruit and vegetable juice
Hot dogs and deli meats (unless cooked to 165°F)
In addition, if you're cooking with raw eggs, make sure the temperature reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
