In brief: Plants

confer the lowest rates of food-borne illness.
According to CDC data in 2016, (source: cdc.gov), meats account for approximately 75% (32% from fish, 43% from land animals), and plants account for about 25% of all food-borne illness. Steps that can be taken to reduce food-borne illness are washing foods and cooking to internal temp of > 165F. Hope this helps!
