    Injury claim in Resipole

    Food poisoning injury claim in Resipole

    Food poisoning can make you feel really ill, perhaps worse than you have ever felt. It will give you nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach cramps and leave you feeling lifeless. You will feel so poorly that you will want to make an injury claim in Resipole.

    Why you will feel so ill

    When food gets contaminated with bacteria and you eat it, the bacteria very quickly multiply and are initially too much for your body to fight. Over the course of a few days, you will build an immunity and your body will kill off the offenders, then hopefully you will start to feel better. Then you may want to make an injury claim in Resipole.

    How the food gets contaminated

    The food gets contaminated because it is not treated properly. The sorts of things that go wrong are:

    • The food is not cooked properly;
    • It is stored at the wrong temperatures;
    • It is used after the use by date;
    • It is cross contaminated with other foods;
    • It is handled by someone who is ill;
    • People handling it do not wash their hands first;
    • The preparation area is dirty; or
    • After being cooked, it is kept at warm temperatures for a prolonged time.

    If it is known that the food is contaminated, it should be destroyed. The problem is that you cannot always see or smell that anything is wrong. This applies to food outlets as well as at home. If one of their suppliers gives them contaminated meat for instance, they may not realise it and serve it to their customers, who then become ill. The cafe or restaurant gets the blame when really it’s not their fault, but the fault of the supplier.

    The Food Standards Agency will sort it

    This is where the Food Standards Agency (FSA) come in. When anyone has food poisoning they should report it to the FSA, who will trace it back to the source. Depending on how the contamination is happening, they will at least stop the spreading of the bacteria, and at the worst close the guilty party’s business and possibly prosecute them.
