Denmark listeria deaths linked to pork sausage

Danish officials say they suspect that sausage contaminated with listeria bacteria has killed at least 12 people.

The infection is thought to have come from pork sausages called Rullepoelse, made by a firm in Hedehusene, near the capital Copenhagen. The product has now been withdrawn from sale.

So far eight other people have tested positive for listeria.
