Food poisoning is a distressing and debilitating condition that can have serious consequences for the victim. Did you know that Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation using no win no fee* in Dollar?
The incidence of food poisoning is rising due to the changing pace of our lifestyles and the increase in the consumption of convenience foods. Preparing meals using raw ingredients is no longer the ‘norm’, with many households consuming a large amount of ready to eat, pre-packed and pre-prepared foods on a weekly basis.
What is food poisoning and how is it caused?
Food poisoning is caused by the contamination of foods by bacteria and viruses. Once this food is consumed, the person may develop symptoms of food poisoning.
Foods may become contaminated through various means.
- Poor hygiene practices such as lack of hand washing and washing of utensils
- Poor storage of chilled and raw foods in fridges
- Unsafe methods of defrosting frozen foods
- Insufficient cooking of foods to kill off bacteria and viruses
- Eating foods that are beyond their use by dates
Food poisoning symptoms often develop rapidly and can be violent, including vomiting, diarrhoea and fever. Generally, food poisoning can develop between 6-24 hours following the consumption of contaminated foods.Open Claim Calculator
