Injury Solicitors in Combe Hay do not like food poisoning
Combe Hay is a village in Somerset. Combe Hay was known in the Domesday Book as Cumb. The parish of Combe Hay was part of the Wellow Hundred.
The village includes a church with a 15th-century tower, the Georgian Combe Hay Manor and Georgian rectory.
As lovely as Combe Hay is, the residents are just as likely to contract food poisoning as residents anywhere else in the UK. Food poisoning can make you feel really poorly, and even mild cases will last a few days. Food poisoning is caused by bacteria contaminating the food, which can be caused by several things, just, some of which are:
- The cooking and preparation areas not being kept clean
- Frozen food being refrozen after thawing
- Fresh food not being properly cleaned
- Food not being properly cooked
- Storing food at an incorrect temperature
- Leaving cooked food at warm temperatures for too long before eating
- Food that has passed its use by date
- Someone who is ill or has dirty hands
- Cross contamination of foods
If you enjoy a meal out and then become ill, you may have a case to make a food poisoning claim and should speak with injury solicitors Combe Hay to discuss the matter.
Injury solicitors in Combe Hay want extra care taken with some foods
Some foods are particularly susceptible to these problems and need extra care taking with them, some of them are:
- Raw meat
- Poultry and pork
- Cooked sliced meats
- Soft cheeses
- Pre packed sandwiches
- Raw eggs
- Raw shellfish
- Unpasteurised milk
If you have eaten any of the foods that have not been treated correctly, you may have to endure a dose of food poisoning and then you should consider talking to injury solicitors in Combe Hay about making a personal injury claim.
If you are unlucky enough to contract food poisoning, you, or someone else on your behalf, should report it to the Foods Standards Agency who are responsible for enforcing the rules and regulations that apply to food outlets of all sorts. They will arrange an unannounced visit to the offending premises and ensure they are compliant. Even if your case of food poisoning is mild, it should still be reported, firstly to prevent it happening to someone else, and secondly if more than one person reports about the same food outlet, it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible.
