Madeleine Brindley of the Western Mail reports that the National Assembly’s inquiry into the South Wales Valleys E.coli outbreak, led by Professor Hugh Pennington, will not only be looking at school meal production, but food production regulation as well.
More than 170 people – mainly children – became infected with E.coli O157 poisoning in south Wales. Five-year-old Mason Jones was a casualty of the outbreak.
The source of the outbreak has been determined to be meat suppliers John Tudor and Sons.
The meat suppliers had been shut down in September, but has recently won a legal case, allowing it to start operating again.
