Scottish food standards agency criticised over E coli poisoning case

Scotland’s food standards agency has come under attack after it confirmed it had no samples or test evidence linking a cheese-maker with a food poisoning outbreak that killed a three-year-old girl.Prof Sir Hugh Pennington, a world authority on the bug blamed for the outbreak, E coli O157, said the information issued by Food Standards Scotland (FSS) on its investigation had been “a mess”, and had failed to answer basis questions about the case.“The whole thing is a mess in terms of the public information coming out” said Pennington, emeritus professor for bacteriology at the University of Aberdeen and a former adviser to the UK Food Standards Agency.

ATLANTA, Sept. 9 (UPI) — A two-year-old child in Connecticut has been found to have an antibiotic-resistant strain of E. coli — the fourth to be found in the United States.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control announced Friday that the E. coli strain, called mcr-1, was found in a two-year-old girl who’d traveled to the Caribbean, and researchers said they expect to see more cases of the drug-resistant bug pop up in the United States.While the strain the girl had was resistant to colistin, the antibiotic of last resort for antibiotic-resistant bugs, it was not resistant to all antibiotics and she fully recovered after being treated with the antibiotic paromomycin.
