The virus, which can cause liver cirrhosis and neurological damage, could have infected up to 200,000 people in the United Kingdom each year from 2014 to 2014, according to a Public Health England (PHE) report.

The report found that the patients had all bought own-brand sausages or pre-packed ham from the same supermarket chain, the Metro reports.

Most patients were reported to only suffer few symptoms, although other people, particularly those who already had weaker immune systems, did develop serious illnesses, according to The Times.

The study found that between 150,000 and 200,000 people in the United Kingdom are infected with HEV each year.

Hepatitis E virus is carried by pigs in Europe, mainly in Holland and Germany, which ultimately ends up being transmitted through sausages and pork products.

United Kingdom pigs do not carry the virus.

In response to the findings, NHS Blood and Transplant has tested blood donations for HEV and plans to screen donated organs and tissue for the virus found in pigs.

Official estimates place the numbers of Brits infected by HEV from pork products each year at 150,000-200,000.

The victims include five Finns, an Italian, a Swede and a Briton, who are all thought to have been "randomly selected bystanders". Mr Zubier said the attacker then moved away and he returned to the injured woman who he believed was dying on the ground.

They added: "Only Supermarket X, especially own brand, was significantly associated with HEV".

However, a spokesperson for the supermarket told The Independent that it works closely with the FSA and PHE to ensure customers can be confident in the safety and quality of the food they buy.

Thousands of people may have been put at risk of contracting Hepatitis E from pork products sold at a leading supermarket.

This can then cause liver cirrhosis and neurological damage.

In a statement Tesco said: "This particular research was carried out six years ago on a small number of people, and although it provided no direct link between specific products and hepatitis E we always take care to review research findings such as this".
