America - Vegetables and fruits cause more US food illnesses

And the misleading headline of the day goes to al Reuters.

Al Reuters either hopes you won't bother to read the article or perhaps not notice this bit:

Common sources of food illnesses include various bacteria such as salmonella and E.coli that can infect humans and animals then make their way into manure used to fertilize plants. The practice of using manure fertilizer is more common in Latin America, which has become a growing source of fresh produce for the United States.

So, more accurately the headline should be "Latin American vegatables and fruit cause more US food illnesses".
