§ Lord Trefgarne
Following reported cases of illness arising from the contamination by belladonna of a batch of imported comfrey herb leaves distributed by Cotswold Health Products Limited the Department of Health and Social Security issued a public warning. Medical practitioners were informed and local authorities invited to take suitable measures to secure the removal of the brand in question from shops and the home. I am not aware of any particular problem in Oldham. Investigations into the source of contamination are continuing.
