Get ready to have your foodie soul crushed a little. Food poisoning expert Bill Marler has spoken, and now you’ll never look at packaged salad greens the same way again.

Marler has seen his share of foodborne illnesses. Currently on the case in the Chipotle e.coli/norovirus litigation, the foodborne-illness lawyer has won more than $600 million for his clients since starting his firm, Marler Clark, in 1998. Marler recently posted the six foods he would never eat in Food Poison Journal, a Marler Clark-run informational website.

On the list:

Unpasteurized milk and juices:
“There’s no benefit big enough to take away the risk of drinking products that can be made safe by pasteurization,” Marler writes, pointing out the 148 food poisoning outbreaks linked to the beverages that occurred between 1998 and 2011. “And keep in mind that comparatively few people in the country ever consume these products, so 148 outbreaks is nothing to ignore.”
