A DEADLY food poisoning outbreak linked to cheap Spanish eggs has killed two people and left others needing hospital treatment in the UK.
Myra Robinson, 72, and Kiu Chan Shek, 86, died in Sunderland Royal Hospital after salmonella struck an old people’s home.
Some five others from the Piers View Care Home were taken to hospital for treatment.
An investigation has now opened to establish whether – although definitely infected – salmonella was the direct cause of the elderly deaths.
Meanwhile, five salmonella outbreaks in restaurants in England and Wales have also been linked to the same source in Spain.
