Food poisoning is unpleasant and is something which unfortunately all of us are likely to experience at least once in our lifetimes. Food poisoning from steak can happen at home, in a restaurant or at an event, and the main cause is often the way the steak has been prepared, stored or cooked. If you have suffered food poisoning from steak and it wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible for compensation. Call our team to find out more.
How does food poisoning happen?
Food poisoning is often the result of harmful bacteria or virus contaminating food and then being ingested. Food poisoning can be avoided by using fresh ingredients and making sure utensils and surfaces to prepare and cook food are clean. Foods should be cooked well and if raw meat or fish is being prepared, the same utensils should not touch uncooked food so as to avoid cross-contamination.
Food should be covered and put in the fridge or freezer. Steaks can have a higher risk of food poisoning as they are not always cooked all the way through and some people prefer a “blue” steak which is essentially raw and seared on the outside. Not all rare or blue steaks will result in food poisoning but it does highlight the importance of using fresh produce which has been stored correctly.
