UK – Scotland -Seven tonnes of cheese seized at firm linked to girl’s E.Coli death

The Herald Scotland

SEVEN tonnes of cheese made by an artisan producer at the centre of a food poisoning outbreak in which a three-year-old girl died have been seized after a batch tested positive for E.Coli.

South Lanarkshire Council planned to remove the cheese from Errington Cheese, however, the producer gained a court order to keep the cheese at its Carnwath base until a sheriff decides whether it will be destroyed.

It means the cheese will remain under lock and key except for the regular “brushing” it requires to stop it from deteriorating after the firm argued the council did not have adequate storage.
