In brief: Avoid infected food
Undercooked meats and poultry are the most common sources.
Fresh, uncooked vegetable which have not been cleaned properly can also lead to infections. Once cooked food has been allowed to reach room temperature it is no longer considered safe.

In brief: Cook foods
cook all your foods well, also wash your hands before and after handling uncooked foods.
Dont tast the uncooked food as you can pick up an infection that way as well. For example, women who make gefilte fish in Europe tasted it raw, and were subject to the worm called diphilobrothum latum. Dont taste raw food.
