The expert holiday illness team at JPS Walker have been consulted by holidaymakers who have become unwell after staying at the Rubimar Suite Aparthotel in Lanzarote.
The Aparthotel is promoted as a modern 4 star complex situated next to the Marina Rubicón and near to the Playa Dorada beach, in the resort of Playa Blanca.
Guests Test Positive for Salmonella
Guests at the Aparthotel have had to seek medical treatment both in Lanzarote and on their return home after suffering from sickness and diarrhoea. Upon their return home a number of guests have tested positive for the presence of salmonella, a bacteria which causes food poisoning.
Salmonella can be contracted by consuming contaminated meat or eggs or drinking contaminated milk. It can also be contracted by eating fruit and vegetables which have been in contact with fertiliser from animals who are infected with the bacteria. Drinking water can also become contaminated.
If you have contracted a gastric illness, in the last three years, due to poor food safety and hygiene standards whilst on a package holiday, then you may be able to pursue a claim against your tour operator. The Package Travel Regulations 1992 enable British holidaymakers to bring claims in this country for the failings at their package holiday hotel.
If you have become unwell after staying at the Rubimar Suite Aparthotel JPS Walker can help you make a claim for compensation on a no win no fee basis. For further information contact our expert team on 0161 713 5575 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
