A hospital patient caught listeria from contaminated sandwiches sold in hospitals, the Times reports on the 27th March. The patient recovered from the bug but later died of the original illness.

The ready made sandwiches, which had use-by dates from 21 February to 14 March and were recalled 2 weeks ago, were supplied to a range of establishments in Kent, Sussex, Essex, Middlesex, Surrey and Greater London including schools, hospitals and local authorities before the problem became known. The majority of the sandwiches were labelled as Anchor products and some others were labelled as Pomegranate.
