The individual who died at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation
Trust in southern England was one of nine confirmed cases of the
infection, the public health agency said in a statement.
The deaths have been caused by an outbreak of listeria linked to
sandwiches and salads at seven hospitals around the country.
"There have been no new cases of listeriosis linked to this
outbreak," the statement said. "Our investigations continue and the
public should be reassured that the risk continues to be low."
