Many might doubt that they could get food poisoning from salad but it is easily done due to cross contamination or from ingredients added to a salad. Food poisoning is no happy event and if you have suffered with vomiting, diarrhoea or weakness you may want to consider compensation. You may have had a scary experience due to being elderly, pregnant or already suffering from a sickness when you then got food poisoning.
Why did my salad make me ill?
Your salad may have been a simple mix of leaves and veggies and you still got food poisoning. Food poisoning may have occurred if your salad was prepared on a surface or with utensils which had also been used to prepare raw meat. This is called cross contamination and it is well known about in food health and safety and should not have been allowed to happen.
Your salad may have contained meat or fish which was spoiled or had not been stored or cooked properly. It is unfair to trust someone with your health and pay for a meal which makes you ill. You have the right to be compensated for food poisoning if it was not your fault and you needed medical attention.
