Injury lawyers in Prudhoe only like good food
Food poisoning is an illness caused by eating contaminated food, usually infested by bacteria, viruses or parasites. These organisms can contaminate the food at any point during its processing or production. This does mean that if it is a restaurant meal that makes you ill, it might not be their fault, but could be the fault of their supplier.
This is where the Foods Standards Agency (FSA) comes in. They are responsible for food safety and food hygiene across the UK. They work with local authorities to enforce food safety regulations, even having staff in food plants to check that the requirements of the regulations are being met.
A board of skilled and experienced persons, appointed in act in the public interest, not to represent a particular sector, leads the FSA. Although they are a government department, they do not have to report to a specific minister and are free to publish any advice it feels necessary. They are however, accountable to parliament through the health ministers. They have five main aims:
- Food produced or sold in the UK is safe to eat.
- Imported food is safe to eat.
- Food producers and caterers give priority to consumer interests in relation to food.
- Consumers have the information and understanding they need to make informed choices about where and what they eat.
- Business compliance is effectively supported because it delivers consumer protection.
If you contract food poisoning, you should report it to the FSA, who will trace the source to stop it happening to others. Then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline about making a personal injury compensation claim.
