Food Poisoning does not just infect the individual but also groups of people at the same time. For example a group may have eaten at the same party, or restaurant or there may be a batch of contaminated food being sold in different places.
In such cases the food safety officers at Carmarthenshire County Council, will investigate the matter to find out the cause. The food officers will alert others to the dangers, offer advice, and where necessary prosecute offenders for breaches of food safety laws.
