'Hygiene issues identified' with cooked ham

The Food Standards Agency said "no trace of salmonella" was found on the cooked ham batches linked to the outbreak but "other hygiene issues were identified."

Testing has been carried out on ham supplied to a number of butchers identified in the investigation.

No trace of salmonella has been found, but other hygiene issues were identified that led to one supplier voluntarily withdrawing certain batches of ham.

Investigations are ongoing.
