Earlier this year, several thousand people went an outdoor food festival. After attending the event, more than four hundred people reported having symptoms of diarrhea and vomiting symptoms associated with food poisoning. Of those cases, twenty-nine were diagnosed as being infected with salmonella. Public Health, England confirmed that it was one of the largest outbreaks and found that the cause was raw curry leaves in a chutney. It seems that the Food Standards Agency had not issued guidelines regarding how to properly use curry leaves, and the offending ones had been raw. There were other strains of bacteria found on the curry leaves and one was a salmonella strain which had not been found in the UK before.
Food poisoning is one of the illnesses for which it is possible to claim personal injury compensation. You need to keep receipts for the meal you ate or the product which was responsible for your illness. If it was caused by a product, then you should also keep any packaging so that it can be analysed.
