    Food poisoning and an expert injury lawyer in Powmill

    Bacteria and viruses are the main threats to food, they contaminate it and cause food poisoning.  Without proper care, the food can provide the perfect conditions for them to multiply and spread, and before you know it, people are being made to feel really ill.  This can happen anywhere, at any food outlet, supermarket, even in your own home.  You will be in no doubt when you have contracted the illness, and if it was the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to make a food poisoning claim, using an expert injury lawyer in Powmill.

    Precautions to avoid giving an expert injury lawyer in Powmill another claim to deal with

    Conditions that lead to bacteria contaminating food and causing food poisoning are many, just some include:

    • Food not being properly cooked
    • Cooking areas and utensils not being kept clean
    • Storing food at an incorrect temperature
    • Leaving cooked food at warm temperatures for too long before eating
    • Food that has passed its use by date
    • Someone who is ill or has dirty hands
    • Cross contamination of foods

    There are some foods that are particularly susceptible to these problems, some of these are:

    • Burgers and sausages
    • Kebabs
    • Raw meat
    • Poultry
    • Cooked sliced meats
    • Pate
    • Soft cheeses
    • Pre packed sandwiches
    • Raw eggs
    • Raw shellfish
    • Unpasteurised milk

    You should consider making a claim, using an injury lawyer in Powmill

    Normally, contaminated food might give you three or four days of feeling ill, vomiting etc., but it does usually clear up on its own.  However, this is not always the case, food poisoning can make you seriously ill, it can damage your nervous system and has been known to cause death.

    If you are unlucky enough to contract food poisoning, you, or someone else on your behalf, should report it to the Foods Standards Agency who are responsible for enforcing the rules and regulations that apply to food outlets of all sorts.  They will arrange an unannounced visit to the offending premises and ensure they are compliant.  Even if your case of food poisoning is mild, it should still be reported, firstly to prevent it happening to someone else, and secondly if more than one person reports about the same food outlet, it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible.
