More sick, dead in European E. coli outbreak
Adding to the confusion, authorities in Hamburg, Germany, where four suspect cucumbers were found last week — three from Spain — said tests on two of the vegetables had found a different strain of EHEC from the one carried by patients in the city.
“Our hope of discovering the source of the cases of severe complications with HUS unfortunately has not been fulfilled by these first results,” said Hamburg state Health Minister Cornelia Pruefer-Storcks.
However, her ministry stressed that the EHEC contamination of the tested cucumbers still posed a health risk.
The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration said Tuesday that no traces of EHEC bacteria were found in tests conducted over the weekend.
It said that it may even ban the imports of fresh vegetables from all European Union member states because of the lack of information about the source of infection.
