Food poisoning

Food poisoning is a foodborne disease such as Salmonella and is usually caused by consuming food or drink contaminated with bacteria or their toxins. Symptoms may include stomach ache, diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea and sometimes a raised temperature.

If you think you have suffered from food poisoning, then in the first instance contact your GP or other medical practitioner. They may request a stool sample from you.

Find out more about food poisoning from Public Health England and the NHS websites.

You can report a possible food poisoning to our food safety team. Please include details of the premises, the food eaten, when it was eaten and symptoms experienced. You can also speak to one of our food hygiene team.
