Hopefully, if you live in Attleborough, or anywhere else in the UK, you will not suffer feeling as ill as food poisoning can make you feel. If you do contract this after eating out or having a take away, you may be able to make a personal injury claim, and you might want to use the services of a compensation solicitor in Attleborough.
A compensation solicitor in Attleborough warns about the places you can contract food poisoning
Any food outlet can create the problem, it is not just restaurants and take aways that can cause food poisoning, for example:
- Cruise ships
- Works canteens
- Hospital cafes
- Supermarkets and shops
These are just a sample of the places you could contract food poisoning. If it happens to you after eating food prepared by someone else, you may want to make a personal injury claim using a compensation solicitor in Attleborough
The cause of food poisoning
The cause of food poisoning is when the food becomes contaminated with bacteria or viruses. Basic hygiene in the kitchen, and personally, can prevent it much of the time, but there are other things that help as well, for example:
- Storing the food at correct temperatures
- Do not keep cooked food warm for long periods
- Avoid cross contamination of food by cleaning utensils and surfaces between preparing different foods
- Discarding frozen food that has thawed and not been used
- Washing salad, fruit and vegetables properly
- Making sure the food is cooked properly
You may be able to make a personal injury claim, if you have contracted food poisoning because of any of these problems that a food outlet has not dealt with.
The foods that are more susceptible
Some foods are more susceptible than others be contaminated, foods like:
- Raw meat and poultry
- Cooked sliced meats
- Soft cheeses
- Pre packed sandwiches
- Raw eggs
- Raw shellfish
- Unpasteurised milk
