Listeria food company deal scrapped by Weston hospital

  • The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust which runs New Cross Hospital was among those supplied with affected product lines

There are nine confirmed cases of people suffering from the potentially deadly infection in total.

According to the NHS, listeria rarely shows symptoms. Three of the patients later died.

The number of deaths caused by patients eating pre-packed sandwiches and salads while in hospital rose from three to five, with evidence suggesting that patients had eaten the products before the 25 May. They were removed on 25 May.

The Good Food Chain, which supplied 43 NHS trusts across the United Kingdom as well as one independent provider, voluntarily ceased production and PHE said the investigation into the outbreak is continuing.

The supplier said the underlying cause of the outbreak remained unclear. The investigation is ongoing.

A deadly outbreak of listeria has hit the United Kingdom, with eight hospitals reporting cases linked to pre-packed sandwiches and salads.

A spokesman for the trust said: "We were one of the hospitals that had been supplied with sandwiches by this company and the moment we had confirmation from PHE of the outbreak all of the sandwiches were removed".

"This brings the total number of confirmed cases to nine".

"UHNM has a robust surveillance system in place for Listeria and we have had no cases identified. Staff, patients and families deserve so much better - our NHS should be at the forefront of supporting people to make healthy choices", said Britain's Hancock.

"One of the patients confirmed today as linked to the outbreak had already died".

Last week, Public Health England confirmed two patients from Manchester Royal Infirmary and one at Aintree Hospital in Liverpool had died.

It is not yet known where the latest two victims were receiving treatment.

The business was supplied with meat produced by North Country Cooked Meats, which has since tested positive for the outbreak strain of listeria and also stopped production.

Dr Nick Phin, deputy director at the national infection service at PHE, said: "To date, there have been no patients linked to this incident outside healthcare organisations, but we continue to investigate. Any risk to general patients and the public is very low and we will continue with heightened surveillance now in place".

A Lanarkshire hospital was supplied with sandwiches and salads linked to a fatal listeria outbreak.

The Good Food Chain has voluntarily ceased production and an investigation into the outbreak is continuing.

In a statement, The Good Food Chain has also said it is cooperating "fully and transparently with the Food Standards Agency and other authorities" and that it hopes the inquiry would be pursued with "urgency", so that the wider industry can learn any lessons as soon as possible.

The government was warned by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) about failings in hospital food safety five years ago when it reported that 32 hospitals had failed to meet food safety standards in 2014.
