UK – Scotland – Cheese maker wins right to see E coli case evidence

The Times

The Scottish cheese company accused of causing the death of a three-year-old child through E.coli poisoning last summer has won the right to see the evidence linking it to the outbreak.

In a case before the Court of Session in Edinburgh, Errington Cheese was granted a petition to be given the data used by Food Standards Scotland and Health Protection Scotland to suggest a link between Dunsyre Blue cheese and the outbreak last summer, which affected more than 20 people and led to the child’s death.
