14th June 2019. Statement on listeria cases being investigated
Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the families of those who have died and anyone else who has been affected by this outbreak.
The underlying cause of it remains unclear. We understand that the investigations being carried out are complicated and will involve a number of stakeholders, but we hope the authorities will pursue their inquiries with all urgency so the wider industry can learn any lessons as soon as possible, and so those affected do not have to wait too long for answers.
For our part, we are co-operating fully and transparently with the FSA and other authorities, and will continue to do so.
