E.coli O103 Outbreak in Norway

18th April 2006

Since the middle of February there have been 16 recorded cases of E.coli O103 with one fatality.  Norway's Food Safety Authority has been trying to find the source of the outbreak and days after advising Norwegians to throw away ground beef bought this winter, now think it is related to specially prepared sausage meats called spekepoise.

The Norwegian public have been warned against eating the sliced sausage, which is produced by Gilde of Norway and sold throughout the country.
