    Which foods are most likely to cause food poisoning?


    Most foods if gone off or not cooked properly have the ability to cause you food poisoning. However, some foods can cause worse food poisoning than others and the last thing you want on holiday is to have to make a travel accident compensation claim.

    What are the foods that are likely to cause food poisoning leading to a travel accident claim?

    One of the most common is undercooked meat, especially chicken. If this is undercooked the restaurant could be looking at a hefty travel accident claim as this can cause severe food poisoning including salmonella.

    Other foods which are more likely to cause you to have to make a travel accident claim because of food poisoning are eggs, shell fish and cheese. All these foods if not cooked properly or used after the food has expired can easily cause a nasty travel accident claim and a serious bout of poisoning.

    How to prevent a travel accident in the form of food poisoning?

    Unfortunately this can sometimes be difficult as you cannot always tell if the food is undercooked. However, to avoid eating such food as undercooked chicken, ensure the meat is white all the way through. If it has any pinkness in it do not be afraid of sending it back to prevent a serious travel accident claim.

    Other than that, if you are at all concerned that your food is undercooked then mention it to the waiter and do not be afraid to ask for a fresh meal. They would much prefer to cook another meal than to face a serious travel accident compensation claim.
