Finest Playa Mujeres, Mexico, 2017

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist International Personal Injury lawyers have been contacted by holidaymakers who suffered gastrointestinal illness following their stay at the Finest Playa Mujeres Hotel, Mexico in June and July 2017. One holidaymaker was diagnosed with Salmonella after returning home.

The holidaymakers were staying at the Finest Playa Mujeres Hotel to celebrate a birthday but had a number of concerns about the food that they were served. Some food - such as chicken burgers - was under-cooked, buffet food did not seem adequately covered and cold food didn't appear to have been properly chilled. The holiday makers also noticed that some food appeared to be served on multiple occasions.

One holidaymaker was diagnosed with Salmonella after returning home to the UK.

Jennifer Mullins, a Solicitor and specialist in International Personal Injury cases at Irwin Mitchell said 'It is concerning to hear of the health and hygiene concerns raised by holidaymakers. Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness, we know first-hand the potential long term conditions that can be associated with it, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).”

If you have also travelled to the Finest Playa Mujeres, Mexico and have sustained an injury or subsequently fallen ill, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of this nature, would like to hear from you.
