Food Poisoning Claims

Food poisoning is an illness caused by eating contaminated food. There are many forms of food poisoning, ranging from mild stomach problems to potentially life-threatening illness. It is very important to take steps to prevent this illness, this includes avoiding food that has been:

– Not cooked thoroughly
– Not reheated correctly
– Not prepared hygienically
– Not stored at the correct temperature
– Left open to pests such as insects, birds and vermin

The symptoms

The symptoms of food poisoning often begin a couple of days after eating contaminated food, however they can also begin hours or even weeks later.

Food poisoning symptoms can include:

– Nausea
– Vomiting
– Diarrhoea
– Abdominal pain
– Loss of appetite
– Raised temperature
– Muscle aches

If you have experienced any of these symptoms, you should first of all drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration and get plenty of rest. Oral re-hydration solutions are available from most supermarkets and pharmacies.
