Foodborne illness is any illness resulting from the food spoilage of contaminated food, pathogenic bacteria, viruses, or parasites that contaminate food, as well as chemical or natural toxins such as poisonous mushrooms and various species of beans. Norovirus is the leading cause of foodborne illness in the U.S., followed by Salmonella, Clostridium perfringens, Campylobacter spp. And Staphylococcus aureus.

Ecoli O157, one of the foodborne illness, is most commonly found in cows, although sheep, chickens, deer, and pigs have also been known to carry it. Meat becomes contaminated during slaughter, when infected animal intestines or feces come in contact with the carcass. Ground or mechanically tenderized meats are considered riskier than intact cuts of meat because Ecoli bacteria, can be mixed throughout the meat in the grinding process or during tenderization.

Food Packaging is aimed at preserving and protecting food from contamination.  For safe food consumption, food packaging should be ensured that food does not come in contact with unwanted bacteria or materials.  Manufacturers cannot just uncertified packaging for food, but adhere to agency regulations that make sure packaging is safe.  Food packed in certified packaging would help protect and preserve it.
