    Food poisoning disease claims


    Food poisoning disease claims

    Food poisoning disease claims can be caused in many different places, just a few are

    • Restaurants
    • Takeaways
    • Cruise ships
    • On holiday abroad

    The causes of food poisoning disease claims

    Bacteria or viruses are the usual causes of food poisoning disease claims in food that:

    • Has not been thoroughly cooked
    • Has not been stored at correct temperatures
    • Has been cooked and left too long at warm temperatures
    • Has been handled by someone who is ill and has dirty hands
    • Has been cross contaminated by another food

    The foods involved in food poisoning disease claims

    Some foods are more likely than others to create food poisoning disease claims, such as:

    • Raw meat and poultry
    • Cooked sliced meats
    • Pate
    • Soft cheeses
    • Pre packed sandwiches
    • Raw eggs
    • Raw shellfish
    • Unpasteurised milk

    Most cases of food poisoning do not need medical attention and will clear up on their own after a few days, but one of the more severe symptoms is dehydration and this can make the illness worse and prolong the length of time it lasts.  There are some groups that are more susceptible to dehydration:

    • Very young children
    • People over 65
    • People with conditions that lower their immune system such as HIV or cancer
