Where do pathogenic bacteria and viruses in injury claim solicitor Honor Oak food poisoning cases from?
- People – any person entering the food preparation room can introduce pathogens, although of course food handlers are the most likely source.

In 2010, the Health Protection Agency studied all the outbreaks of food poisoning and food borne disease and found that fourteen per cent were caused by an infected food handler. Any of these could have resulted in an injury solicitor Honor Oak food poisoning claim.
- The environment around the food – any particles in the air can land on food. The particles may come from dust, dirt or waste food. That is why it is vital to keep the catering premises clean and to carefully dispose of all food waste if injury solicitor Honor Oak food poisoning cases are to be avoided.
- Pets and pests (rodents, insects, dogs, and cats) carry pathogenic bacteria and should not be in catering premises.
- Raw ingredients entering the catering premises – many food poisoning organisms (bugs) naturally occur in meat, poultry and eggs. This is because animals can carry them in their guts. For this reason, the same bugs are also commonly found in untreated milk and water and on soil that could be on the outside of vegetables.
- Raw shell egg – eggs in their shells -are raw animal products and need to be treated in the same way as raw meat and poultry. Salmonella bacteria can be found on the outside of the shell so extreme care is needed when handling eggs before use and in disposing of the cracked shell.
- Raw vegetables and fruit – vegetables and fruit are grown in soil. Soil can be contaminated by animals, manure and by water used to irrigate the crops. If vegetables have a lot of soil on them, it would be best to remove as much as possible before they enter the food preparation area. Raw vegetables and fruit must be adequately washed before they are served in order to avoid injury solicitor Honor Oak food poisoning cases.
- Water – only drinking water (water that has been treated to make it safe to drink) should be used in catering premises.
