One of the things that many people look forward to the most when taking a cruise is the food, from the variety of food they can eat to the unique and delicious meals they will enjoy. Unfortunately, though, the very food that a person looks forward to enjoying may end up being a source of pain and discomfort, ruining the trip, if it is contaminated.
Louis A. Vucci P.A. knows far too many cruise ship passengers suffer from the consequences of contaminated food. From food poisoning to other food borne illnesses, contaminated food can cause a wide range of health problems for a passenger, not to mention end up costing them emotionally and financially. Fortunately, by filing a passenger claim, many cruise ship victims of contaminated food are able to get justice and compensation for their undue suffering.
Causes of Contaminated Food on Cruise Ships
Although cruise ships are often well-regulated regarding food preparation and serving, sometimes negligence occurs, allowing contaminated food to be served to passengers. Some examples of how such a situation might occur include:
Staff members failing to wash hands
Staff members failing to sterilize cooking utensils
Cooking staff leaving food exposed to bacteria
Serving old / expired food
Staff members leaving meat out for too long prior to serving
Any negligence that results in food contamination could be a danger to you or to your family and friends. But you do not have to face this situation on your own; you can hold those responsible for the negligence that led to the contamination accountable with the help of a skilled legal professional.
