Death deli meat sold in canteen; OUTBREAK TEAM HUNTING SOURCE.

Byline: By MAGGIE BARRY

THE stores behind the Paisley E.coli outbreak last night admitted the suspect meat had been sold in their public cafes and staff canteens.

Morrisons has now stopped selling cold meats at the deli counters at the stores at Lonend and Falside Road.

Health officials are still trying to pinpoint the source of the outbreak at the two stores and are investigating 12 suppliers who provided meat to Morrisons.

Officials took samples which have been sent to labs for analysis and interviewed all staff on the counters.

Dr Syed Ahmed, chair of the local Outbreak Control Team said it may take 14 days for symptoms to show. But the bug has already left dad-of-two Stephen Rowan, 72, critical in Glasgow's Victoria Infirmary.

His disabled wife Margaret, 66, the first to die in the outbreak, was diagnosed with the bug just days after she was nursing her husband at their Paisley home.

Two other woman, aged 70 and 71, are also still recovering from E.coli and four other people who also tested positive for the bug are recovering at home.
