Why you might make a food poisoning injury claim in Steeple Ashton
As lovely as Steeple Ashton is, the residents are just as likely to contract food poisoning as residents anywhere else in the UK. Food poisoning can make you feel really poorly, and even mild cases will last a few days. Food poisoning can be caused by several things, just some of which are:
- Food not being properly cooked
- Storing food at an incorrect temperature
- Leaving cooked food at warm temperatures for too long before eating
- Food that has passed its use by date
- Someone who is ill or has dirty hands
- Cross contamination of foods
Particularly susceptible to these problems are:
- Raw meat
- Cooked sliced meats
- Soft cheeses
- Pre packed sandwiches
- Raw eggs
- Raw shellfish
- Unpasteurised milk
Food poisoning usually manifests itself within three days of eating the bad food, and mild cases will usually clear themselves within another three days. Plenty of rest and water helps a lot.
If you are unlucky enough to contract food poisoning, you, or someone else on your behalf, should report it to the Foods Standards Agency who are responsible for enforcing the rules and regulations that apply to food outlets of all sorts. They will arrange an unannounced visit to the offending premises and ensure they are compliant. Even if your case of food poisoning is mild, it should still be reported, firstly to prevent it happening to someone else, and secondly if more than one person reports about the same food outlet, it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible.Open Claim Calculator
