For the record, German news is reporting at this point in time a variety of sprouts that could be the culprit, like alfalfa sprouts, radish sprouts, broccoli sprouts, etc., not just bean sprouts.

Just wash your veges and wipe your hands after having a dump.

Basic hygiene practices.

Frank... are you still coming to Germany or did you paste this as a warning to deter travellers?

I am coming for the Christmas Markets, food, bier, wine, people, and culture.

I guess that covers it.

Just like everything else that has been said so far, this is, at the moment, just a rumour or suspicion, nothing proved, so please don't declare it a fact before it is one.

I think we are almost having more threads on the forums about this than actual cases...

Safest things for nourishment: bier and brezeln. Can't be too safe.

I guess the bean sprouts didn't cause it but other sprouts are being checked from same farm and 1 worker at that farm has E. Coli.

Stay safe.

Just reported on the news that 40 samples have been taken from that farm and so far the 23 tested have been negative so don't talk too soon

About 3 hrs ago - CNN was reporting it's NOT the sprouts... They never actually KNOW anything it seems!
