Kalithea Horizon Royal - Salmonella Food Poisoning in Rhodes Hotel Confirmed by Holiday-Makers
Simpson Millar’s Holiday Compensation Claims Solicitors are currently receiving enquiries from holiday-makers who suffered illness at the Kalithea Horizon Royal Hotel in Rhodes, Greece.
By: Simon Lomax, Holiday Illness Claims Manager
We intend to make holiday compensation claims against Thomson Holidays for holiday-makers who have been struck down with salmonella food poisoning during their stay at Hotel Kalithea Horizon Royal.
Initial reports suggest that over 420 holiday-makers have suffered from violent stomach cramps – watery green diarrhoea – headaches – fever and nausea.
Simon Lomax, Simpson Millar’s Holiday Illness Claims Manager states:
"I am now able to report on the results of medical tests received by holiday-
"Holiday-makers have also reported that antibiotics were made available in the hotel’s reception so that guests could self medicate. This is most peculiar because antibiotics are ineffective against viral infections (eg 'airborne viruses')!"
"Reports suggest children have been hospitalised during the outbreak with ambulances turning up to reception."
Simon continues to say:
"Holiday-makers should be aware that Salmonella is often caused by contaminated food or poor standards of hygiene. The infection can lead to secondary conditions such as Irritable Bowl Syndrome or Reactive Arthritis if left untreated."
"Salmonella food poisoning is not the consequence of airborne viruses – change in climate or temperature – dehydration - over indulgence on food or alcohol and any advice to the contrary would be extremely irresponsible."
"Those holiday-makers dining in the Athena Restaurant should note that salmonella bacteria can be transmitted by flies which have laid eggs and fed on excrement."
"Those holiday-makers returning home ill from the Kalithea Horizon Royal should seek urgent medical attention from their GP and insist on stool samples being taken."
"It is our intention to recover compensation for those holiday-makers who suffered salmonella food poisoning or any other illness caused by poor hygiene and unsanitary conditions at the Hotel Kalithea Horizon Beach in Rhodes – UK holiday-makers should not be subjected to salmonellosis whilst on package holidays."
