• Keeping the preparation and cooking areas clean
• Cleaning utensils between preparing different foods
• Cooking food thoroughly
• Washing fresh foods properly

• Not keeping cooked food at warm temperatures for a prolonged time
• Storing food at the correct temperatures
• Avoiding the cross contamination of foods
• Not letting food pass its use by date
• Not letting someone is ill or got dirty hands handle the food
These are just a few of the precautions someone who makes food should be taking and not doing so could cause the food to become infected and make their customers very ill.

Accident Advice Helpline’s injury lawyer Tedburn St Mary says reporting your case of food poisoning is very imprtant
In all honesty though, to the restaurant, café, takeaway, canteen or wherever else you have eaten the bad food, it is not always their fault it could be someone else further up in the food train. Contamination can happen anywhere you could think of in the food preparation chain and you getting ill could be the fault of one of their suppliers. Because of this you should report your case of food poisoning to the Foods Standards Agency who will track the source of the contamination and put a stop to it. Not doing this could mean many other victims will suffer with food poisoning like you have, they might even get it a whole lot more serious than you have had it.
Accident Advice Helpline’s injury lawyer in Tedburn St Mary warns that severe food poisoning can have some serious consequences
With most cases of food poisoning, it clears itself over a few days of rest for the victim, but with severe cases of food poisoning often make people really ill and can end up with hospitalisation, the biggest problem being dehydration from a lack of fluids.
Drinking plenty is vital to a quick recovery, but taking it in sips often is better than gulps occasionally. At its worst, food poisoning can damage the central nervous system and sometimes causes death.
