Cadbury's 'linked' to salmonella
The Health Protection Agency has said that contaminated Cadbury's chocolate was the most likely cause of an outbreak of salmonella poisoning.

In a statement, the agency said 13 of the people it had interviewed reported eating Cadbury's products.

Another person said they had eaten confectionary, but did not know the brand.

The National Public Health Service in Wales also reported a person who had eaten a Cadbury's product.

The agency's Outbreak Control Team (OCT) said: "After carefully considering all the available evidence the OCT concluded that consumption of products made by Cadbury Schweppes was the most credible explanation for the outbreak of salmonella Montevideo”.

The agency also noted the number of cases of reported salmonella dropped following the firms voluntary product recall and said the geographical distribution of cases suggested the outbreak was caused by a nationally distributed food.

Cadbury's has agreed to improve its testing procedures after experts working for the Food Standards Agency said they were not up to modern standards.
