Alleged Food Poisoning

Most restaurants, caterers and hotels receive 'Allegations of Food Poisoning' (AFPs) on occasions. 

Our team of qualified and experienced experts can deal with AFPs on your behalf. We contact the guest, discuss their experience and gather information. We then follow up with you to establish food preparation methods, available records, identify any causes for concern and then roll out an action plan. Our letters detailing the findings of the investigation are sent to your customer after having been approved by you.

In the event of a food poisoning outbreak, our expert team are on hand to advise and support you through the investigation as well as liaise with guests and enforcement authorities as necessary.

How our service works:

  • We correspond in a professional and empathetic manner with your guest 
  • Incident management from notifications to conclusion
  • We liase with all parties involved
  • Analyse food samples using an independent laboratory if required
  • Provide a detailed report including recommendations

AFPs are logged using our safety compliance software, FACT, that all correspondence and dialogue is tracked and monitored.
