Staff at Craigavon Hospital are working towards resuming a normal service in the kitchen, a spokeswoman for the Southern Trust has explained.

Following the discovery of E.coli 0157 during routine sampling, a hot food only menu has been provided for the past week.

The Trust spokeswoman continued: “The external laboratory partner has recalled the original test results following further investigatory analysis. There was no E.coli 0157 detected in any samples taken by the Environmental Health Department or the Trust’s own laboratories.”

The Trust apologised for any inconvenience caused by the temporary measures but said they had been taken in the interests of public safety.
