How food poisoning can affect you
You may start to feel ill soon after eating the bad food, certainly no longer than three days later. You will have nausea, vomiting and stomach cramps. You should rest and sip plenty of water until you start to feel better. Dehydration is one of the main problems and you should try not to let this happen. Only then should you attempt any other food and then it should be things that are easy to digest.
Whose fault was the contamination?
Food can be contaminated at any stage of the preparation process and it could be the supplier to the outlet that is at fault, not the outlet themselves. For this reason, if you have a case of food poisoning, you should report it to the Foods Agency. They will trace and put a stop to the correct source of the contamination.
