In late March 2014, Food Safety Officers swooped on an illegal food factory in the London Borough of Bexley, for the second time that month. It was a follow-up monitoring visit to the factory that was producing tofu (bean curd).
Officers found that the food hygiene standards were not adhered to strictly and the owners were told to stop production and destroy all the food that had been made.
If you buy a contaminated product from a shop or supermarket and then suffer from food poisoning, you should have medical treatment and your doctor should inform the local Public Health and Hygiene Department, whose offices will investigate. You should keep the receipt and packaging, as this will be analysed to determine which bacteria are lurking on it.
Solicitors in Bexley
If you have had food poisoning either after eating a contaminated product, or a meal at a restaurant or other establishment, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the manufacturer of the product, or against the restaurant owner. Solicitors in Bexley, or ones based elsewhere in the UK, can help you file your claim.
