Subject:       Nitrites in hospital meals

 

Request:

I would like to know whether hospitals within your foundation trust a) nitrite-cured ham in their meals and b) other processed meats containing nitrites in their meals, including but not limited to bacon, salami or chorizo.

 

 

Response:

We can confirm that there are nitrites in the ham salads and corned beef pie that we provide to our patients.
