Talk to an accident solicitor in Brent Knoll about your accident on holiday
When we go out of an evening to enjoy a meal we tend to flock to the most popular places, restaurants, cafes or bars that other people have recommended to us. Not only do we learn from such recommendations that these establishments serve tasty meals, we are also reassured that it is safe to eat there.
Sadly, every year people suffer food poisoning or worse when they go on holiday and eat meals at unfamiliar restaurants, snack bars or cafes. Salmonella is usually diagnosed very quickly after food poisoning, but what about other health hazards caused by unhygienic conditions in the gastronomic establishments you have visited on holiday?
Although regular inspections in Britain ensure a certain amount of cleanliness and standard is maintained, in other countries this is not always the case – and even in Britain there are simply not enough official inspectors to go around keeping all diners safe.
This nasty disease is caused by a spirochete Borrelia burgdorferia that is carried by certain types of ticks. These blood-sucking parasites prey on mice, household pets and people, but also on cows, horses and deer, dogs and rabbits. Laboratory workers handling rabbits, mice or dogs are at risk as are pet owners, animal breeders and farmworkers. They might get bitten by ticks already present in their animals’ fur.
Restaurant diners on the other hand may be exposed to Lyme disease, where urine of infected mice, cats or dogs has contaminated an area, namely one where food is handled and where restaurant staff has come into contact with either the animals themselves or with their urine.
The result of such unhygienic conditions is often an outbreak of Lyme disease that may only reveal to be such after months or even years; unfortunately, the symptoms don’t show up immediately and it can be some time before a correct diagnosis is made.
