The Good Food Chain - Statement

Following contact by the media regarding the listeria outbreak in a number of hospitals across the country, our Trust has issued the following statement:

The Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust can confirm that The Good Food Chain Company did, in common with the vast majority of local trusts, supply salad and sandwiches to the Trust prior to Sunday 26th May 2019. Following notification of a problem with some of the items supplied by the company, immediate action was taken to remove all of their food items from kitchens, stores, and staff restaurants across the Trust to mitigate any associated risks.

For clarification, the Trust had no reported cases of listeria, or any other adverse reactions prior to withdrawing these products.
