Matthew and the burger bug

Brian Deer investigates an outbreak
of e-coli o157 food poisoning

When Matthew Bell, of Morcambe, Lancashire, became caught up in an outbreak of the food poisoning bug e-coli O157, nobody could have predicted how it would end.

Brian Deer's award-winning Sunday Times magazine investigation of 1998 revealed how the common food poisoning bug e-coli o157 could be removed from the food chain - protecting the public from this killer infection - but that families not only continue to suffer, but are often led to believe that it's their own fault if a child succumbs.

The Sunday Times Magazine, May 17 1998.
