A restaurant, a takeaway, canteens, and supermarkets – they are all potential places to contract food poisoning if they do not take proper care of the food they sell.  If buying food from any of these, or any other food outlet, makes you ill, you might have food poisoning and want to discuss the matter with an injury lawyer in Pooley Bridge.

The common causes of contaminated food

Food poisoning is caused by contaminated food, usually because not enough care has been taken with it.  What they should all make sure is:

  • Food has been cooked properly
  • Food that should be chilled is stored at temperatures under five degrees.
  • Cooked food should not be left at warm temperatures for too long.
  • Food that is past its use by date should not be used
  • Food should not be handled by someone who is ill or got dirty hands.
  • Cross contamination of foods where bacteria can be spread such as work surfaces and equipment should be avoided

They should take extra care with some foods that are particularly susceptible to bacteria, These are:

  • Burgers
  • Sausages
  • Kebabs
  • Raw meat and poultry
  • Cooked sliced meats
  • Pate
  • Soft cheese
  • Pre packed sandwiches
  • Raw eggs
  • Raw shellfish
  • Unpasteurized milk

Most cases of food poisoning are mild and don’t need medical treatment, they clear up in 3 or 4 days, but it can be much more severe than this and can cause long-term problems.  It has been known to damage the nervous system and cause deaths.
