Food poisoning directory
Foodborne illness, also known as food poisoning, is a common problem for people throughout the world, yet it is also distressing and can even be life-threatening. Some of the most common cases of food-borne illness are caused by bacteria such as Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, E. coli, listeria, botulism and clostridium difficile (C. diff). According to the NHS, reported cases of food poisoning in the UK are probably lower than the actual figures because people with mild symptoms are unlikely to report them.
