Germany upholds warning for vegetables
Berlin: Germany`s health minister says researchers still have not been able to pinpoint the cause for a food borne bacterial outbreak that has hit Germany and other European nations.
Ilse Aigner told German ARD Television on Wednesday that scientists are working nonstop to try to find out what produce has caused the contamination with an unusual strain of the common E. coli germ that left 15 dead and about 1,500 infected in Europe.
In Germany, where most of the victims are, officials say that investigations, including interviews with patients, have shown that people were likely infected by eating raw cucumbers, tomatoes or lettuce.
Aigner told consumers to continue avoiding those vegetables.
