Egypt Rejects Being the Reason of E.coli Outbreak in Europe

EFSAThe rumor of an E.coli outbreak that has killed 50 people in Europe, mainly in Germany caused by fenugreek seeds imported from has been rejected by Egypt’s ministry of agriculture. The head of Egypt’s Central Administration of Agricultural Quarantine, Ali Suleiman, said claims by the European Food Safety Authority () that Egyptian fenugreek seeds exported in 2009 and 2010 may have been implicated in the outbreak were “completely untrue”.

Suleiman told the official MENA news agency “The presence of this bacterium in Egypt has not been proven at all, and it has not been recorded. The Egyptian company that exported the seeds in 2009 has stressed in a letter that it had exported the fenugreek to Holland and not to Germany, Britain or France”. The Egyptian seeds could have been to blame due to “rapid risk assessment” applied by EFSA with the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
