7-year-old tests positive for salmonella
A lady from Crarae who travelled to the Jungle Aqua Park in autumn last year spoke of their experience on TripAdvisor after she, along with her family of 8, were struck down with symptoms of gastric illness, including her 7 year old son who tested positive for salmonella poisoning.
“After spending two weeks at this hotel, all 8 of my family fell in with severe sickness and diarrhoea.
“After spending about £70 at the local pharmacy and feeling ill most of the holiday with stomach cramps, we managed though.
“However, my 7-year-old boy is still ill and has been now for 3 weeks.
“His poo has been tested and it has come back with salmonella food poisoning” says KKRPM
18-month-old girl contracts campylobacter and sepsis
Another guest, ‘Savvy Steph’, also spoke of their experience after her 18-month-old baby tested positive for campylobacter and sepsis, following their Egyptian holiday.
“Our 18-month-old daughter started with diarrhoea in the second week.
“We put it down teething or something she had eaten.
“But when we arrived back in the UK, she was rushed into hospital with Sepsis, and after her stool sample had been sent to the microlab, she had picked up Campylobacter from Egypt.
“It’s a good job I’m a nurse and know what to do!”
Another guest, ‘MrsMadBad’ a nurse from Birmingham, also travelled to the Jungle Aqua Park last Summer, spoke of their experience after their “familymoon” ended in disaster after their son was “lost 4lbs in 5 days”
“The food was horrific, although plenty to eat, there were flies galore and very poor hygiene standards” the lady said.
“My husband and two children stopped here for a familymoon”.
“My son was exceptionally unwell and needed interventions to get him better.
“He lost 4lbs in 5 days!! Projectile vomiting and horrific diarrhoea.
“He had a temperature through the roof and was delirious.
“Had he have been in the UK, he would have been admitted for severe dehydration.
“We sat and had to give hum fluids every ten minutes, it’s a good job I am a nurse and knew what to do.
“My son is still unwell and not 100% since this holiday
“He receives regular treatment and is undergoing investigations still because it completely wiped out his good bacteria in his gut!” MrsMadBad added.
Salmonella and Campylobacter Holiday Claims
Both salmonella and campylobacter can cause serious health problems and are among the most common types of food poisoning related to poor food hygiene in package holiday resorts.
