Meat withdrawn over E.coli outbreak
Health News in South Wales reports that Experts investigating an outbreak of E.coli among dozens of South Wales children have found a link between a meat supplier and schools.
As a result, John Tudor and Son of Bridgend, South Wales, has withdrawn all of its cooked meats range due to the contamination risk with E-coli.
A Food Standards Agency said: “The company supplies primarily to schools and other local authority institutions in the South Wales area. It is not believed that the company supplies any outlets that sell direct to consumers.”
He added that “there remains the possibility that some unused affected product may still be found in other catering premises. The FSA has issued an alert to local authorities asking them to to ensure that all cooked meat products from this particular supplier, delivered on or before 20 September 2005, are removed from use.”
