  2. Sandwich listeria outbreak 'may not be over'

    Public health officials are continuing an investigation into the source of an infection following the deaths of three hospital patients who ate pre-packed sandwiches from a Staffordshire supplier.

    Good Food Chain

    One person died at a hospital in Aintree and two more died in Manchester. Three other patients are seriously ill.

    The listeria bacteria is being linked to pre-packed sandwiches from The Good Food Chain, based in Stone, Staffordshire which has voluntarily stopped production.

    A spokesman for The Good Food Chain Ltd said the company's production facility was "cross contaminated by an ingredient from one of its approved meat suppliers".

    A spokesman for North Country Cooked Meats said it was "currently co-operating fully with the environmental health and the Food Standards Agency in their investigations".

    Quote Message: We hope there'll be no more cases, one of the problems with this particular infection is the long incubation period - it can be three or four weeks - so in terms of the numbers we're just watching. from Nick Finn Public Heath England
