UK – Two E. coli O157 infections linked to English farm

Food Safety News

Two confirmed cases of E. coli O157 infection have been linked to a farm in England.

Acton Scott Historic Working Farm in Shropshire temporarily closed this past week to take precautionary measures to reduce the risk of visitors becoming infected. The steps include providing more handwashing facilities and improving safety information about feeding and touching animals.

Members of the Public Health England (PHE) West Midlands Health Protection Team and environmental health colleagues from Shropshire Council are involved in the investigation at the farm, which is owned by the council. No information was provided about the patients.
