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.
