The St Helena Health Directorate has been made aware by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office that a multi-agency investigation is being carried out into cases of Listeria infection in the UK.

The Listeria outbreak is linked to the pre-packed sandwiches made from ready-to-eat meat manufactured from the company North Country Cooked Meats.

The Environmental Health Section has contacted the relevant importer on St Helena who sources products originating from North Country Cooked Meats. The importer has been advised to retain their North Country branded products i.e. canned pork roll and chopped pork, until further investigations have been completed in the UK.

Updates will be provided when further information is received.
