A sixth person has died in a Listeria outbreak linked to sandwiches served in hospitals in the United Kingdom, according to an article on the Food Safety News website.

The patient was one of the nine previously confirmed infections and there are no new cases of listeriosis linked to the outbreak.

The recently identified person is thought to have acquired listeriosis from Good Food Chain products while at St. Richard’s Hospital in Chichester. 

St. Richard’s is part of one of 43 hospital trusts across England that was supplied with pre-packed sandwiches and salads by the Good Food Chain.
