    Are you looking for a personal injury solicitor in Poole for your food poisoning case claim?

    Sadly, you can get food poisoning from a back street café in Poole or from a top class restaurant. Anywhere that serves food has the potential to cause a food poisoning outbreak.

    Sometimes the outbreak is caused by the management of the food business failing to handle an unexpected situation. For example, the electricity supply to a room containing the refrigerators could fail and the refrigerators may stop working. The food business owner/manager should summon an emergency call out by an electrician who should be able to sort the problem within a couple of hours. If they do not do that, the temperature of the foods can rise and food poisoning bugs can grow. If the customers are made ill by this food they may be able to start a claim for compensation.

    Other hygiene problems

    Other outbreaks are caused by the arrangement of food within the fridges being very poor. For example, if raw meat is placed in the fridge to defrost above some milk-based deserts it can cause real problems.

    Meat can drip onto the deserts below taking salmonella bacteria and other food poisoning bugs from the raw meat and transferring it to the deserts. This is called cross contamination. If the bacteria grows to very large numbers on the deserts it can cause food poisoning cases.
