    Been poisoned by something you ate? Call the injury lawyers in Winchester!

    Food poisoning is a dreadful condition, as it may strike without warning and can leave the victim feeling weak and shaken.  Food poisoning can often affect a large number of people who eat food that has been pre-prepared in buffets or carveries.

    Food poisoning may clear up on its own without medical intervention, however the symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea can be severe and require longer term treatment and a period of recuperation.  In the worst of cases it can damage the central nervous system and even lead to death.

    How does food become contaminated?

    Food may be contaminated by bacteria, viruses or parasites.

    Bacterial food poisoning

    Campylobacter is one of the most common causes of bacterial food poisoning.  It can be found in unpasteurised milk, raw poultry and untreated water.

    Salmonella is another well known cause of bacterial food poisoning.  It is found in raw eggs and undercooked egg-based products, raw poultry and under cooked poultry, unpasteurised milk and untreated water.

    Listeria is found in foods that are pre-packed and ready to eat without the need to re-heat them.  This lack of cooking before eating may mean that these types of foods are more partial to being contaminated with Listeria and therefore passing the bacteria onto humans.

    Viral food poisoning

    Viruses are one of the most common causes of widespread food poisoning, as they are airborne and easily passed from human to human on unwashed hands and utensils. Humans can contaminate food through handling it whilst preparing, cooking and serving foods. People who are ill with food poisoning symptoms should avoid working with and handling food-based products, as they may inadvertently cause cross contamination and infect large numbers of people.

    Parasitic food poisoning

    If you grow your own vegetables and salad products or buy them from local producers, it is particularly important that you wash and scrub them thoroughly to avoid the risk of parasites remaining on the skin and leaves of vegetables and salad products.  One parasitic cause of food poisoning is Toxoplasmosis and this is spread by infected cats through their faeces.
