Shigella food poisoning can be prevented with proper handwashing and preventing flies to come in contact with food. They can transfer shigella from feces to food.

Shigella food poisoning can be prevented by using good food preparation practices. Food preparers should wash their hands with hot soapy water after using the bathroom and should not prepare food when suffering symptoms of an intestinal illness. Fruits and vegetables should be washed thoroughly, particularly if they will not be cooked.
