    Food poisoning is usually a mild condition which can be treated with self help treatments of rest, rehydration salts and keeping hydrated.  Food poisoning is caused by consuming food which has been contaminated by bacteria, viruses or parasites.

    Symptoms of food poisoning

    The symptoms you may experience when you have food poisoning are:

    • nausea
    • vomiting
    • diarrhoea
    • lethargy
    • stomach cramps
    • high temperature

    Bacterial causes of food poisoning

    There are many bacteria that can contaminate food, but the most common ones in the UK are:

    1. Campylobacter is one of the main causes of bacterial food poisoning.  It is present in raw and undercooked meat, unpasteurised milk and untreated drinking water.
    2. Salmonella may be present in raw and undercooked poultry and raw eggs.  It is a common cause of bacterial food poisoning.
    3. Listeria may be present in ready to eat foods such as pate, cooked sliced meat, smoked salmon, unpasteurised milk, butter and ready to eat sandwiches.

    Viral causes of food poisoning

    Norovirus is one of the major causes of viral food poisoning. Typically, it is transferred to food through cross contamination from someone who is ill themselves and transfers the virus to food or some one else.  This type of food poisoning can cause widespread illness which can ruin holidays and special occasions.

    Parasitic causes of food poisoning

    Toxoplasmosis is a type of parasitic food poisoning which is transferred to food through the faeces of infected cats.  It is important that produce is washed thoroughly and cooked to ensure that any infection is removed.  This is especially important for pregnant women and the elderly who are particularly vulnerable.
