Bill Marler is a food safety attorney who has handled cases involving E. coli, salmonella, listeria and other foodborne illnesses over the past 30 years. Marler is featured in the new Netflix documentary Poisoned: The Dirty Truth About Your Food.

Marler spoke to the BBC about the foods you should stay away from if you want to avoid getting sick.

Life was going well for 17-year-old American girl Stephanie Engberg from St. Louis when she visited a resort in the Dominican Republic with her parents for spring break.

She had an upset stomach before getting on the plane, but she didn’t think about it for a second and felt better when she arrived. Her condition worsened during the night and she was admitted to the hospital.
