Food Poisoning Outbreaks
If a number of people ate at the same venue and have the same food poisoning-type symptoms, this may be due to a Food Poisoning Outbreak.
Our investigation into the outbreak will involve:
- interviewing people who are ill
- interviewing others who ate at the venue but didn't have symptoms
- taking faecal and food samples (if appropriate)
- inspecting the implicated venue
Where there is a Food Poisoning Outbreak, our Food, Health & Safety Officers would follow up and investigate potential sources.
We will also liaise with Public Health England when dealing with a Food Poisoning Outbreak.
