Shaina Petersen said she became unwell on Monday and had eaten some of the affected hummus at the weekend.

She went to the doctor on Thursday and was tested but had not yet received the results. “The doctor said given my symptoms I’m a probable case. My symptoms have been flu-like with fatigue, chills, aches, headache, nausea and diarrhoea but with painful stomach cramping, loss of appetite and a curdling feeling.”
