The place suspected to have cultivated the German killer E coli bug


Monday, 06 June 2011
The German authorities have now narrowed their suspicions to a single nursery, which is believed to be behind the great poisoning e coli bacterium EHEC or known as VTEC in Denmark.

The horticulturist suspected place lies in Bienenb�ttel south of Hamburg, Lower Saxony.
The nursery has grown bean sprouts, which have been supplied to restaurants throughout Northern Germany.

Deliveries have now stopped, and the Germans have been told not to eat bean sprouts.
More than 2,000 have fallen ill and 22 died of the power unknown bacteria.

The now-closed nursery also practiced the cultivation of other types of sprouts, and this happens at a temperature of 37 degrees, which is an ideal temperature for bacteria growth.
