If you suspect that something you have eaten has made you ill or has been contaminated, contact Environmental Health Services so that our officers can investigate the incident. If you have a sample of the food, keep it wrapped and refrigerated so it may be tested.
The Environmental Health Officer will need to know when and where you may have consumed contaminated food and the details of the food eaten. If anyone has become ill, it is often helpful to know what their symptoms are and when the illness started.
You are advised to seek medical treatment if the symptoms are severe or if the person who has food poisoning is young, old or immunocompromised.
