In the summer, the major cause is food spoilage such as when a mayonnaise based potatoe salad gets warmed in the sun and then is eaten.
The other major cause is contamination from improper processing or from improper hand washing and hygiene from food handlers. These can lead to salmonella poisoning, hepatitis or e coli infestation.
