There are many different kinds of food poisoning one can get from sausages and pork in general. E. Coli, salmonella, and listeria are a few of the bacterial ones. Pork can also give you a parasitic food poisoning call trichinellosis. The bacterial and parasitic causes can come from a variety of places. One of the most common contamination sources is not washing hands properly.
If you’re already infected with a food bourne illness, you can make it worse by not washing your hands and being careful when preparing food. If some does happen to get on the raw pork, there’s another prevention method that few people skip when preparing pork: cooking it. Who likes raw pork, anyway? Making sure that the pork is cooked thoroughly can be the difference between food poisoning and safe food.
