SA Health says nine people, including two children, have been hospitalised after eating products from the Gawler South bakery, which has two outlets in Gawler, about 40km north of central Adelaide.
“We’ve now seen cases in people aged two years to 70 years old and we are anticipating more cases as further test results come through,” SA Health’s director of public health Kevin Buckett said.
The source of the contamination had been linked to sandwiches, wraps, rolls and focaccias with chicken and other fillings.’’
In a statement posted on social media the bakery’s management said it was no longer cooking chicken on the premises and SA Health officials were happy with its food handling processes.
Management also apologised to anyone who had become sick. “We hope this apology is received to be genuine and in good faith,” the statement said.
According to the ABC, the bakery was also struck by a salmonella outbreak in October 2016 which affected eight people.
