Betta Maid bakery fined $63,000 for selling unsafe food that caused salmonella outbreak

The Wollongong bakery behind a salmonella food outbreak last year has been fined $63,000 for handling and selling unsafe food.

Early in 2015, 31 cases of confirmed salmonella were reported at 10 aged care facilities in the Illawarra, south-eastern Sydney and the Australian Capital Territory.

Two patients died in the aftermath of the outbreak.

The New South Wales Food Authority prosecuted Betta Maid Bakery in Unanderra over the outbreak.

The food authority said Betta Maid had supplied the bakery products that were contaminated with a rare strain of salmonella.

Ten charges against the company were upheld in a Wollongong court last week.

The bakery was shut down not long after the outbreak.

Separate charges brought against the company's director are still before the court.
