A recent court case saw the owners of B&L Sausages Ltd in Halifax narrowly escape going to jail after a series of food hygiene breaches concerning their sausage-making business. The couple who ran the business pleaded guilty to a series of charges relating to the business they ran from a barn in Mixenden, Halifax.
A raid by a team from Environmental Health in May 2012 found appalling conditions in which sausages were being made before being distributed to a number of outlets in the area. These conditions included rat poison close to the production area, rusty tools and a variety of particles and items in the food preparation area – including manure.
Fortunately it seems as though no incidents of food poisoning cropped up as a result of these appalling food hygiene breaches and the conditions the sausages were prepared in.
Do you have a potential case to launch as a result of suffering food poisoning?
If you have suffered from food poisoning in the past you will know how dreadful it can make you feel. At best you will be ill for a day or two and at worst the most serious cases can lead to hospitalisation and treatment, before taking months to recover.
While we can take adequate measures to stay safe at home, you need to trust the people who prepare, store and cook food in restaurants, takeaways and food outlets if you want to stay healthy and free from potential food poisoning. If you believe you may have suffered a case of food poisoning within the last three year period and you think you know who is to blame, you should seek professional legal advice to determine whether you have a case or not.
