Hospital Desserts Contaminated With 'Organic' Matter in Kitchen

2018-11-08 05:55
Police have opened an investigation into the contamination of food items at the Flinders Medical Centre in South Australia on November 6. Acting Assistant Commissioner Joanne Shanahan said police were “satisfied” that no patients consumed the “small number” of contaminated jelly desserts prepared for patients on “modified diets” and there was no further threat. 9 News reported that staff made the discovery on November 6. The exact cause of contamination of hospital food is unknown but the discovery was described as “solid, organic-looking product” described as “very obvious” in appearance, but police would not say if the contaminant was “faecal matter”. Southern Adelaide Local Health Network chief Sue O’Neill said she was satisfied that no patients were fed the desserts. Credit: SA Police News via Storyful
