What factors can cause food poisoning?
Food poisoning is caused by food becoming contaminated by bacteria and viruses. In the right conditions bacteria and viruses will thrive, breed, and spread. The situations you, and food outlets, should try to avoid are:
- Not keeping the preparation and cooking areas clean
- Not cooking food thoroughly
- Keeping cooked food at warm temperatures for a prolonged time
- Not storing food at the correct temperatures
- Cross contamination of foods
- Letting food pass its use by date
- Letting someone is ill or got dirty hands handle the food
Any of these can contaminate the food and cause you to use an injury lawyer in Llandovery.
Foods that need more care…
There are some foods that you should take extra care with because they are more likely to become contaminated. These are:
- Raw eggs
- Soft cheeses
- Cooked sliced meats
- Pre-packed sandwiches
- Unpasteurised milk
- Poultry, pork and raw meat
- Raw shell fish
Any of these, if not treated properly could cause you to use an injury lawyer in Llandovery.
Most cases of food poisoning will clear themselves over a few days of rest, but severe cases of food poisoning often make people really ill and can end up with hospitalisation, the biggest problem being dehydration from a lack of fluids. Drinking plenty is vital to recovery, but taking the liquid in sips, often, is better than gulps occasionally.
