Cross-Contamination is regarded to be one of the most common causes of food poisoning 

Cross-Contamination happens when harmful bacteria are spread from one surface to another which is then used for food preparation, pests play a large part in the spread of bacteria Rats and Mice are known to spread more than 35 diseases, with Cockroaches being implicated in the spread of 33 kinds of bacteria E. coli and Salmonella being the most common. Flies and flying insects pose a large risk for cross-contamination as they are able to fly back and forth from outside bin storage areas, rubbish and animal faeces through open un-screened windows and doors.
