Why are Sprouts Dangerous?

Sprouts grow in warm, humid conditions, which are also ideal for the growth of germs. When sprouts are eaten raw, they can cause food poisoning from E. coli, salmonella, and Listeria.

Cooking sprouts thoroughly can kill dangerous pathogens, which reduces the risk of food poisoning, though sprouts are rarely served fully cooked. Plus, contamination in many of these cases comes from the seeds.

Most sprouts are grown hydroponically in clear water with seeds harvested from the fields. If the seeds are tainted, the sprouts grown from them will be contaminated, as well (even if you grow your own sprouts at home from purchased seeds).
