UK – Crown not Prosecuting Errington Cheese for Death

Crown won’t prosecute Errington Cheese for 3 year old’s death

Food Safety News

Based on the existing evidence, the Crown Office announced Monday it would not prosecute Scotland’s Errington Cheese Ltd. or its owners for the death of a 3-year old girl in September 2016.

A criminal prosecution is still possible if new evidence becomes available and the authorities may conduct a Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI).

The death came during an outbreak of E. coli O157  in Scotland in 2016 between July and September. Seventeen of the 26 people stricken required hospital care. The likely source of the outbreak and cause of the girl’s death was Errington’s Dunsyre Blue cheese, according to a Health Protection Scotland (HPS) report published in March 2017.The family-owned Errington, based in Lanarkshire, has never accepted that its unpasteurized Dunsyre Blue caused the outbreak or the death.
