One of the main ways to avoid food poisoning is a good hygiene standard. Keeping the kitchen clean at all times, and cleaning work area, utensils and hands between different foods helps stops the cross contamination, if a food has become infected with bacteria. It is this infestation that causes food poisoning, and innocent victims of it to make a personal injury claim in Redbridge.
Look at the hygiene rating to try and avoid making a food poisoning injury claim in Redbridge
The Foods Standards Agency (FSA), together with local councils, has started a scheme that shows prospective customers how hygienic a food outlet is, before they decide to eat there.
The FSA visits the premises and gives it a rating on its hygiene standards. Each one is given a rating between 0 and 5, which they have to display in a prominent position, visible from the outside of the premises.
The scheme applies to all places that sell food, from the poshest of restaurants to supermarkets and little corner shops. It does not reflect in any way on the type or quality of the food that is being sold, it is purely a hygiene rating, nothing more.
If a café, for instance, gets a bad rating, they are able to make the improvements the FSA recommend, and then reapply for another inspection to see if they get an improved hygiene rating status.
Food poisoning has become much more common as people turn more and more to convenience foods, and eating out. Hopefully, this scheme will encourage the cleanliness of the food outlets, and reduce the risk of food poisoning happening.
Hygiene is not the only thing they need to do to avoid a personal injury claim in Redbridge being made against them
There are other precautions that need to be taken to help reduce the risk of food poisoning. Food has to be properly cooked, it has to be stored at the correct temperatures and no frozen food that has thawed should ever be refrozen. These things are among the many precautions that should be taken, and if they are not the food outlets may well have to face a compensation claim, if they cause people to become ill with food poisoning.
