    Compensation for butcher food poisoning


    Most of us recognise the importance of ensuring we cook our food properly before eating it. We also know how and why certain foods must be stored to ensure they are safe to eat when we do cook them. However, we still have to trust the food we buy is safe in the first place.

    One of the most common places to buy meat in the UK today is from a butcher. This could be an independent butcher shop or a butcher’s counter in a supermarket. In either case it is quite rare to encounter any problems with the meat purchased. Butchers are highly trained and skilled and they understand the importance of good food safety. However, in some cases the meat may not be fit for consumption and this may cause food poisoning.

    Compensation claims can be made for butcher food poisoning

    Food poisoning comes in a variety of forms but they are all equally unpleasant if you are the one suffering. It is one thing to get food poisoning from food you yourself have cooked or prepared incorrectly. However, it is quite another to purchase meat you thought was safe to cook, only to find it gave you an upset stomach after eating it.

    If there is evidence of negligence in preparing, storing and selling the meat you ate, you may have good cause to bring a compensation claim against those who sold it to you. The first step you should take in this situation is to call a professional injury compensation lawyer. They will be able to advise you on whether you have a case to make and if so, how you can move ahead with it.
