What are the symptoms of food poisoning?
Food poisoning can start rapidly and symptoms may be violent and occur without prior warning. They may include:
- Stomach cramps
Causes of food poisoning – Cross contamination.
- Raw foods which come into contact with cooked foods can transfer bacteria, which may be harmful if consumed.
- Similarly, utensils which are used for raw foods shouldn’t be used to serve up cooked foods as they may transfer bacteria.
- High levels of hygiene and food preparation practice should be in place to ensure that foods are handled correctly, stored and chilled at the correct temperatures and cooked thoroughly to reduce the risks of food poisoning.

Campylobacter is one of the most common causes of bacterial food poisoning and is present in untreated water, unpasteurised milk, raw poultry and meats. Salmonella is present in raw and undercooked eggs and poultry. Listeria is found in ready to eat foods such as pate, smoked salmon, soft cheeses and cooked, sliced meats.
