    Ayr Accident at Work Compensation

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Ayr

    Dodgy sandwich? Raw chicken? Lukewarm Italian? Don’t let your food poisoning go unreported!

    As our lives become busier and more hectic, the divisions between periods of work and relaxation become blurred and many businesses now routinely provide catering arrangements for their employees. Working breakfasts, lunches and afternoon meetings are popular ways of ensuring optimum productivity and performance from employees whilst enjoying pre-prepared foods.

    Unfortunately, many cases of food poisoning are reported as occurring through work related functions and many people may find themselves suffering the distressing symptoms of food poisoning through no fault of their own.

    What is food poisoning?

    Food poisoning is the term given to a debilitating condition caused when food and drinks which are contaminated by pathogens are ingested into the body.  Many foods are highly susceptible to becoming contaminated as they be uncooked such as sushi or preserved in ways which may be easily infected such as smoking fish such as salmon or trout or freezing seafoods such as prawns.  Once ingested, the number of pathogens can reproduce and become dangerous to health, causing the body to react with:

    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhoea
    • Fever
    • Stomach cramps
    • Headache
    • Nausea
    • Listlessness
    • Tiredness

    Which foods are most susceptible to contamination?

    • Soft, unpasteurised cheeses such as goats’ cheese which may be contaminated with Listeria
    • Re-heated foods such as rice which can become contaminated with bacteria
    • Raw and undercooked meat products may contain Campylobacter
    • Seafood and raw fish such as sushi
    • Poultry products may not be thoroughly cooked and carry Salmonella bacteria
    • Ready to eat products that do not require re-heating such as smoked salmon and dressed crab
