A TripAdvisor user commented âmy partner and I had funny stomachs throughout our stay and I suffered constant stomach pain.â He continues âfor the majority of the holiday, I had to be in close proximity to the toilets.â
Another TripAdvisor user claims the âfood is not fit to eat.â
Head of Travel Law, Anne Thomson, commented on the case âIt is vital that strict food hygiene standards are maintained otherwise there is a risk that holidaymakers will fall ill.â
âWe have represented clients who stayed at the Rixos Sharm El Sheikh who unfortunately suffered similarly and were diagnosed as having contracted salmonella infections on their return to the UK.Â These cases are indicative of breakdowns in food handling/cooking practices â if food is stored, prepared, cooked and served correctly, salmonella cases would not arise.â
