Have you purchased rotten food?
As food safety is extremely important, all food retailers are required to follow strict health and safety laws and guidelines. For example, if food is to be kept refrigerated it must be chilled at a certain temperature, and this temperature must be maintained at all times.
If a power failure was to cause a supermarket’s fridges to fail, the food should then be destroyed as it could potentially be harmful. Just like food retailers, restaurants and takeaways are also held to high standards to ensure that the food they sell is safe.
Although some foods will merely cause a minor illness if they aren’t stored appropriately, some foods could cause very bad food poisoning and could even be fatal if they aren’t stored and prepared correctly.
If you’ve purchased food from any retailer and it’s made you ill, you may not be aware that a personal injury solicitor in Larbert could help you to make a claim for compensation.
