Don't share utensils, cutting boards for cooked and uncooked. Wash hands.See 1 more doctor answer
Contaminated food: An outbreak occurs when a food source, often one that is served uncooked or is undercooked, has been contaminated by animal droppings. Only typhoid, of the salmonellae, is not from an animal source.
