* In general, sprouts are highly perishable foods. They also have a high risk of bacterial infection, such as from Salmonella or E. coli, due to the humid environment needed for their growth.
* Both Salmonella and E. coli can cause food poisoning, which may trigger diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
