UK Opens “Public Inquiry” Into Death E coli Victim Mason Jones

William Tudor, the butcher jailed for food safety violations, after the meat he supplied schools in the United Kingdom killed young Mason Jones will not be testifying in the public inquiry now being held.

The death of Mason Jones and the illnesses of 118 confirmed cases of E. coli O17:H7, including 31 children who were sent to hospitals, is all connected to Butchers John Tudor and Son in Bridgend, which had the contract to supply cooked meat to the schools service in late 2005.

Tudor and Son was identified as the probable source and inspections found dangerous found hygiene practices, leading to cross contamination between raw and cooked meats, through which the E.coli O157 had been spread.

Tudor went to jail in September 2007 and won’t be required to testify.
