A new study identifies the riskiest meats that can cause more foodborne illness-related hospitalizations than other meats.

A new study finds ground beef and chicken are the riskiest of meats.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest researchers examined more than 33,000 cases of foodborne illness.

The researchers ranked the meats based on which contamination was most likely to lead to hospitalization.

They say some meats may have caused more illnesses but were less likely to cause severe illness.

They found chicken nuggets, ham and sausage pose the lowest risk of foodborne illness hospitalizations.
