What to do if you get food poisoning?


If you get food poisoning seek medical attention. Food poisoning can be particularly serious in young children, the elderly and people of all ages in poor health.

Early medical attention is recommended, especially for these at risk groups: the elderly, small children, people with reduced immune systems and pregnant women.

Contact your local food enforcement contact and report the illness. It probably wasn’t the last meal you ate, but if you have any food samples keep them for analysis. If you are feeling unwell visit your doctor.

Some types of food poisoning are life threatening and early diagnosis can help avoid severe consequences.
