NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has issued a statement about an outbreak of E.coli O157 in Scotland. The FSA is working with them, NHS Lothian, NHS Lanarkshire, Health Protection Scotland and Glasgow City Council environmental health, to identify the source. Seven cases of illness have so far been reported.

While there is no conclusive evidence at this stage, initial investigations have indicated that there may be a link to the consumption of burgers at the SSE Hydro venue.
