    Food becomes contaminated by bacteria and viruses and sometimes chemicals. Once the food is contaminated, the bacteria will multiply rapidly and the you will become very ill if you eat it.

    Food could be contaminated if:

    • It has been handled by someone who is ill or who has dirty hands
    • It has been cross contaminated with another food
    • It has gone past its use by date
    • It has been cooked and then kept at a warm temperature for a long time
    • The preparation area is dirty
    • Fresh foods have not been properly cleaned
    • Thawed frozen foods have been refrozen
    • It has not been properly cooked
    • It has been stored at the wrong temperature

    There are some foods that are more susceptible to food poisoning and extra care should be taken with them. Raw meats and dairy products are prime examples, as are things like burgers and sausages.
