Campylobacter

By on March 16, 2016

Have you suffered from Holiday Sickness typically from food poisoning while on holiday?
Campylobacter is form of food poisoning that is one of the most common forms of holiday illness reported by all-inclusive holidaymakers.  Campylobacter is caused by food and drink being prepared in an unhygienic manner and is mostly spread by food being left to cool in environments such as Hotel buffet areas.
Campylobacter can incubate for between 2 and 10 days after the contaminated food has been eaten.  During or after this time the following symptoms can occur:

  • Diarrhoea, which could contain blood.
  • Stomach cramps.
  • Vomiting & Sickness
  • Muscle aches
  • Fever
  • Headaches

The above symptoms can last for up to 3 weeks and it is important to get plenty of rest and stay hydrated to ensure recovery.
Although some sources suggest mild symptoms’ do not require treatment, Holiday Sickness Claims always advise that you seek medical attention whilst on holiday as this will greatly increase your chances of making an eligible claim upon your return.
To avoid the risk of contracting Campylobacter it is important to follow these guidelines:

  • Avoid foods not cooked thoroughly and/or re-heated incorrectly.
  • Avoid foods not prepared hygienically.
  • Avoid food not stored at the correct temperature.
  • Avoid salads and any uncooked fruits and vegetables (these may have been handled unhygienically)
  • Wash hands before and after meal times and after using toilets and washrooms.
  • Frequently use an alcohol-based hand gel.

It is your tour operators’ responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel.
