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.
