Food safety team investigating E. coli outbreak linked to salad in pre-packed sandwiches

Food safety lawyers are looking into an E. coli outbreak believed to be connected to sandwiches, wraps and salads sold in major UK supermarkets.

Posted on 14 June 2024

Press Association reports that Greencore Group is recalling the food products in a “precautionary measure”.

The BBC reports that the products recalled include sandwiches, wraps and salads sold at Sainsbury’s, Asda, Aldi, Morrisons, Co-op, and retail pharmacy chain Boots.

A number of people across the UK have been admitted to hospital after being affected by E Coli.

The Food Standards Agency lists products in which E. coli has not been detected but are being recalled as a temporary measure.

The agency said that anyone who had any of the products being recalled should not eat them.

In June the UKHSA confirmed at least 67 people had been admitted to hospital following the E. coli outbreak, the BBC reports.

Some 211 people are known to have been affected by E. coli recently.

Leigh Day head of food safety Michelle Victor said:

“The food safety team at Leigh Day has a wealth of experience in dealing with E.coli and food poisoning claims. If anyone has been affected by E. coli in food products they can get in touch with the team.”
