    Types of food poisoning

    • Listeria bacteria is commonly found in foods that require no further cooking and are ready to eat such as pate, smoked salmon, soft cheeses and cooked sliced meats such as ham
    • Campylobacter is one of the most common causes of food poisoning.  This is found in meat products and can cause widespread symptoms.
    • Viruses such as Norovirus is responsible for large scale food poisoning outbreaks in hospitals and schools, as it is easily transmitted through cross contamination and poor hygiene practices.

    2. Use separate utensils for raw and cooked foods during food preparation
