Which ones have changed? Let’s start at the beginning and work our way across. Alfalfa sprouts, considered dangerous because of the risk of food poisoning, but what’s the latest? Should we keep avoiding raw alfalfa sprouts? Yes. Another major Salmonella outbreak last year. The FDA and CDC recommend not eating raw alfalfa sprouts. So I continue to encourage people to eat broccoli sprouts instead.
