    Did you have food poisoning?

    If you have suffered food poisoning after eating out and are thinking about starting up a food poisoning claim then there has probably been a food safety failure at the food premises where you ate. A food premises can be a:

    • Shop
    • Restaurant
    • Canteen
    • Takeaway
    • Hospital
    • Hotel
    • Guesthouse
    • Conference centre
    • Nursing home
    • Nursery

    Any of these food businesses can suffer a food safety failure and any of them could give rise to a food poisoning claim.

    Food safety failures

    A failure of food safety occurs when food is consumed which contains substances that it should not contain. If something that could cause harm to a human being is in the food, it is a hazard.

    The three main groups of substances that can end up in food but should not be there are harmful micro-organisms, foreign bodies and chemicals. If these things are present in the food, the food is contaminated.

    Also, there are some types of plants and fish that are poisonous to humans. These are rare but include under-cooked red kidney beans and Japanese puffer fish. Finally, there are some foods that cause allergic reactions in some humans (e.g. some people are allergic to nuts).

    Micro-organisms food poisoning claims

    Micro-organisms are tiny creatures that are too small to seen by our eyes. The types of harmful micro-organisms that can be a food safety hazard are:

    • Bacteria
    • Viruses
    • Protozoa
    • Fungi (moulds)

    Any of these can make a human being ill and give rise to a personal injury compensation claim.

    Foreign bodies in food

    Objects from the environment around the food can get into the food and cause a food safety hazard. The environment around the food includes the food handler as well as the places where the food is stored, prepared, displayed or served. Some of the types of foreign bodies that can end up in food are:

    • Hair, nails, jewellery and plasters from the food handler
    • Rodents (rats and mice)
    • Insects (weevils, flies and moths)
    • Objects from the environment – nuts, bolts, screws, match sticks

    Some of these could cause a physical injury to the throat, mouth or teeth of the person that eats them rather than actual food poisoning symptoms. It is extremely distressing to find these objects in food.
