Slater and Gordon associate Jonathon May said his firm was acting for 10 people, ”with a few pending enquiries” to the firm.
”We allege that the Silo Bakery was negligent in the way it prepared and stored its food,” Mr May said.
”We allege this resulted in a number of cases of food poisoning which has had a severe impact on all our clients.
”The nature and severity of the injuries vary from client to client, but in general include severe nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, muscular pain, headaches and other complaints. Up to five of our clients were hospitalised.”
It is understood Silo Bakery has engaged its own solicitors, although proceedings have not started.
I’m curious as to what insurance they could have which would cover this distressing turn of events?
