Health Protection Agency exposed staff to E.coli

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) has today been fined for exposing several employees to the risk of infection of E. coli O157.

In October 2007, the staff concerned were working at the Centre for Infections in Colindale, when an amount of the bacteria spilled onto the floor of the site waste discard facility, as it was being disposed of.
