A dairy linked to an E. coli outbreak in 2019 in England has been prosecuted for food safety and hygiene offences.

NP and DJ Darwin Ltd, trading as Darwin’s Dairy, pleaded guilty at a virtual magistrate’s court hearing this past week and was sentenced to a £6,000 fine ($8,300), £170 ($235) victim surcharge, and Barnsley Council was awarded £1,000 ($1,400) toward costs.

The company, based in the English town of Barnsley, was charged with failing to implement and maintain procedures based on the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles, which help to manage food-related hazards.
