The causes of food poisoning
Food poisoning can be caused by various pathogens including bacteria, viruses and parasites. These pathogens contaminate food which can cause food poisoning symptoms to develop when consumed by humans.
Bacterial food poisoning
- Bacterial food poisoning is a common cause of food poisoning. The usual culprit is Campylobacter which may be present in foods such as raw and lightly cooked meats, unpasteurised milk and untreated water.
- Salmonella is another well known cause of bacterial food poisoning. Salmonella may be present in eggs, raw poultry, pork and untreated water.
- Listeria is found in ready to eat foods such as pate, sliced cooked meats, smoked salmon, soft cheeses and ready to eat sandwiches.
Viral food poisoning
Viral food poisoning can spread rapidly through cross contamination from human to food and from human to human. Viruses such as Norovirus can cause widespread outbreaks of food poisoning to occur in hospitals, nursing homes,schools, nurseries, hotels and anywhere a number of people eat the same meal.
If an infected person prepares, cooks or serves food, then there is a high likelihood of the food becoming contaminated and spreading to a large population. Many people on all inclusive holidays abroad can suffer from large scale food poisoning outbreaks which can devastate their holiday and cause distressing symptoms to develop.
Parasitic food poisoning
A common cause of parasitic food poisoning is Toxoplasmosis. This parasitic form of food poisoning is caused by food becoming contaminated by infected cat faeces. This can contaminate food during its growth and production which can be transferred to humans if it isn’t washed and prepared thoroughly before being eaten.
