Have you suffered from food poisoning which has caused you to be sick or ill when on holiday?
This holiday illness is easily contracted when eating contaminated food. It can often be very mild, but in some cases has been very severe, even life threatening with symptoms starting after hours, days or weeks of eating the contaminated food.
There are a number of reasons why people get food poisoning while abroad, especially on all-inclusive holidays where food may be:
- Not cooked properly
- Re-heated incorrectly
- Prepared in unhygienic conditions
- Stored at incorrect temperatures
- Easily accessible to pests such as birds, insects and vermin
The most common types of bacterial food poisoning are E-Coli, Botulism, Salmonella and Campylobacter.
- Abdominal pain
- Loss of appetite
- A high temperature
- Aching muscles
Most package holidays that are booked in the UK are covered by Package Travel Regulations 1992 which allows you to still be covered by UK law and regulations, even though you have traveled to a variety of destinations with differing laws along your travels.
