Scotland has been witness to the recent outbreak of E-coli 0157, which is a stark eye-opener that adequate measures are needed to effectively deal with a lethal and even fatal food poisoning infection. Three fresh cases, not connected to the former outbreak, is being traced to a slaughtering outlet in South Lanarkshire, were confirmed yesterday.
A warning about E-coli is being flashed to inform the public about its dangers. But this by no means is to instigate a food fright. It is only to keep the public informed about the potential health hazard, so that people can take adequate precaution.
