    Food Poisoning could cause an injury claim in Piccadilly

    We all need food. Sometimes we eat at home, but other times its nice to go out for a meal or have a take away.  Whichever way you decide to eat, if the food has been contaminated in some way, it will make you ill and cause the need for an injury claim Piccadilly.

    Bad food is not nice, will make you ill and may mean you are entitled to make an injury claim in Piccadilly

    Food normally gets contaminated by bacteria and occasionally by viruses.  Once in the food these microbes will breed and multiply very quickly, and unfortunately it’s not a case of the more the merrier.  Your food could be contaminated if:

    • It has not been properly cooked
    • It has been stored at the wrong temperature
    • It has been handled by someone who is ill or who has dirty hands
    • It has been cross contaminated with another food
    • It has gone past its use by date
    • It has been cooked and then kept at a warm temperature for a long time
    • The preparation area is dirty

    Any food can become contaminated but some are more prone than others

    Some foods need extra care taken with them because they are more prone to contamination. Examples of these are:

    • Poultry
    • Pork
    • Raw meats
    • Raw eggs
    • Unpasteurised milk
    • Pre-packed sandwiches
    • Shellfish
    • Soft cheeses
    • Pate
    • Burgers
    • Kebabs
    • Sausages
    • Cooked sliced meats

    It has been known, and there have been some high profile cases, for water to be contaminated leading to lots of people becoming ill and in some cases of death occurring.

    The symptoms of food poisoning

    The ill feelings usually start no more than 3 days after you have consumed the bad food.  Then you will feel sick, have vomiting and diarrhea and stomach cramps.  The best thing is to rest and drink plenty, in sips is the right way.   Do not attempt any food until you are feeling much better and then make it things that are easy to digest, like toast.
