Food poisoning could be the reason to use an injury claims lawyer in Lochearnhead
Food poisoning is caused by food becoming contaminated, usually with bacteria. In the right conditions bacteria will thrive and rapidly spread. The situation you, and food outlets, should try to avoid are:
- Cross contamination of foods
- Using food that is past its use by date
- Not cooking food thoroughly
- Keeping cooked food at warm temperatures for a prolonged period
- Not storing food at the correct temperature
- Letting someone is ill or got dirty hands handle the food
- Not keeping the preparation and cooking areas clean
Any of these can make the food contaminated and cause you to use an injury lawyer in Lochearnhead.
Foods extra care is needed with
There are some foods that you should take extra care with because they are more susceptible to becoming contaminated. These are:
- Poultry, pork and raw meat
- Sausages and burgers
- Raw shell fish
- Unpasteurised milk
- Raw eggs
- Soft cheeses
- Cooked sliced meats
- Pre packed sandwiches
Any of these, not treated or prepared properly, could cause you to use an injury lawyer in Lochearnhead.
How you will feel if you have food poisoning
Normally you would start to feel ill within 1 – 3 days of eating the bad food. The symptoms you can expect to experience include:
- Stomach cramps
Most cases of food poisoning our bodies will fight and it will clear up on its own within a few days. Until you feel well enough, you should rest, have lots of sips of water and not eat any other food. When you feel ready to eat again you should start with foods that are easy to digest such as toast.
