    Places who handle food should be careful if they do not want to have to deal with the solicitors in Fleetwood at Accident Advice Helpline with a food poisoning claim from one of their customers.

    This could happen in any sort of food outlet, just some of them being:

    • Restaurants
    • Takeaways
    • Local shops
    • Schools canteens
    • Cruise ships
    • Hospital canteens
    • Works canteens
    • Cafes
    • Supermarkets

    Any place that handles food run the risk of someone getting food poisoning if they are not careful enough. If this happens the person who is ill may want to use the solicitors in Fleetwood at Accident Advice Helpline to make a food poisoning injury claim.

    The causes of food poisoning

    Food poisoning is caused because of bacteria or viruses contaminating food. Once they get on the food they will quickly multiply and very soon the food in unfit to eat.  Hygiene playa a very important roll in preventing this, both in the kitchen and the people that work in the kitchen, both should be clean at all times, and no one who is ill should handle the food.

    To try and avoid the contamination the outlets need to make sure that the food:

    • Has been cooked properly, but then not left too long at warm temperatures
    • Is still in date
    • Has been stored at correct temperatures

    People who do not take the correct care with food and put their customers at the risk of food poisoning, may find themselves facing the solicitors in Fleetwood because of a personal injury compensation claim.

    The blame for food poisoning

    The automatic assumption is that it is the place you have eaten at that is at fault. although it could be the meal you had there that made you ill, it is not always their fault.

    Contamination can happen anywhere in the food chain, and the fault could be with one of their suppliers.

    It is because of this that food poisoning cases should be reported to the Foods Standards Agency.  They will find the source of the contamination and put a stop to it, closing the offending business until it is corrected if need be.
