"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

Legal 500 (2016)

Hotel Media Belisaire and Thalasso

Irwin Mitchell’s International Personal Injury team are concerned for holidaymakers who have recently returned from their holidays at the Hotel Media Belisaire and Thalasso in Tunisia.

Despite some positive reviews, a report from February 2015 suggests that guests suffered from Salmonella during their stay at the resort. Visitors reportedly suffered symptoms including diarrhoea, stomach cramps, headaches, dehydration and fever.

Salmonella is the most common cause of food poisoning and infections usually result from a combination of contaminated foods, poor kitchen hygiene and inadequate cooking of food. The bacteria are particularly found in poultry, eggs, unprocessed milk, meat and water, with symptoms usually occurring within 12-36 hours.

If you have travelled to the Hotel Media Belisaire and Thalasso and subsequently suffered symptoms of illness, our specialist solicitors would like to hear from you.
