Cold meats could be the source of a recent listeria outbreak in Sweden in which a total of twelve people have died, the National Food Agency suspects.

63 cases of the food bug have been reported over the last six months, and 27 came from the same strain, newspaper DN reports. A couple of the victims kept food diaries, and they had both eaten sandwich meats.

Listeria is most dangerous for pregnant women and those with immune deficiencies. It can cause blood poisoning and meningitis.
