What is Salmonella Poisoning?

Salmonella is the name given to a group of bacteria which causes food poisoning among humans. Food poisoning of this nature commonly occurs when food or water consumed by humans is contaminated with germs, poisons or chemicals. These microbes include one or a combination of viruses, bacteria and parasites.

Typically, this form of food poisoning causes an infection which breaks in the human intestines (gut) and commonly leads to the affected person(s) experiencing discomforting symptoms including diarrhoea and sickness as this is the body’s way of trying to eject or flush the poison from it’s system.

There are an estimated 2500 different strains of Salmonella effecting many people here in the UK, with some cases proving more serious than others. In prevention of this; there’s an extensive range of governmental regulations food establishments must adhere to in avoidance of any cases occurring though these regulations aren’t always followed.

If you’ve contracted salmonella poisoning and it wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim. Contact Tyler’s Solicitors now and know your rights.

How Could I Have Contracted Salmonella?

Though commonly consumed in foodstuffs, the salmonella bacteria can also be found in many animals. Similarly to humans, the bacteria is found in the gut of wild and farm animals combined infecting humans if they consume these meats, eggs, milk or any other food or drink product sourced from salmonella infected animals.

The salmonella infection can be prevented when cooking meat if the meat is cooked accurately and to the recommended temperatures of the Food Standards Agency (FSA) as the high temperature kills the salmonella bacteria.

Salmonella can also be contracted in abroad countries as legislations, rules and regulations differ around the world. Therefore food temperature standards, for example, may not be as strict as they are here in the UK which can cause various kinds of food poisoning; including Salmonella.

The trouble, when filing a compensation complaint for an incident which happened abroad is that the amount that one can claim differs dependant on the law of that particular country.

Upon infection, it normally takes around 12 to 72 hours for the salmonella symptoms to develop after eating or drinking items containing traces of the salmonella bacteria.

Symptoms of the poison tend to last between four to seven days and most people recover without the need to seek treatment.

If however, you feel seriously ill, it may be necessary to seek professional medical advice as the dehydration caused to the body by the food poisoning can be (though very rarely) life-threatening.
