Three dead after UK hospital listeria cases linked to pre-packaged sandwiches

LONDON, June 7 (Reuters) - Three people have died in hospital in northern England and three more are seriously ill after an outbreak of listeria potentially linked to pre-packaged sandwiches, Public Health England (PHE) said on Friday.

The deaths happened at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust hospitals, it added in a statement on its website.

The Good Food Chain company, based in Staffordshire, central England, has voluntarily ceased production while an investigation takes place, PHE said.
