Government body blamed for E. coli outbreak in Wales - UK - A Welsh government agency has been charged for failing to conduct proper inspections on food premises, which has resulted in the recent E.coli outbreak.

Local media reports revealed that only nine of the 22 councils in Wales had carried out inspections on high risk premises in 2003-04.

There are now 144 E. coli cases in south Wales. The number of affected schools now numbers 37.

It was also found that no inspections were carried out on animal feeds, a violation of the Food Safety Act. Animal feed is said to be among the chief causes of the outbreak.
