Article: 53/2604

The Food Standards Agency (FSA), with the support of Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and local authorities, is leading the investigation into the food supply chain to identify the source of the listeria strain linked to recent hospital cases. This strain was traced back to a producer which withdrew all their ready-to-eat foods on a precautionary basis.

Investigations are continuing to try and determine the origin of the listeria strain and an enhanced set of food safety measures have been put in place.
