    Mitcham is a district in the southwest area of London.  The Domesday Book records Mitcham as Michelham.  It was held partly by the Canons of Bayeux; partly by William, son of Ansculf and partly by Osbert. Its Domesday assets were:  8 hides and 1 virgate. It had ½ mill worth £1, 3½ ploughs, 56 acres (23 ha) of meadow.  It rendered £4 5s 4d.  London is a very cosmopolitan city with food outlets serving food from all over the world.  If you have a meal or takeaway from one of these outlets, and become ill because of that meal, you might want to make a food poisoning injury claim using an injury lawyer in Mitcham.

    • Make sure no on that is ill has any contact with the food
    • Avoid cross contamination of foods
    • Not keep food at warm temperatures for prolonged periods once it has been cooked
