Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Hel­lenic Food Au­thor­ity (EFET) said yes­ter­day there have been no im­ports into Greece of Span­ish veg­eta­bles that could pose a risk to pub­lic health. The state­ment fol­lowed an out­break of E. coli in Ger­many, which has killed 11 peo­ple and has been blamed on cu­cum­bers that were im­ported from Spain. Hun­dreds more peo­ple are said to have suf­fered food poi­son­ing in Ger­many af­ter con­sum­ing the veg­eta­bles. EFET said it was in con­tact with the Cen­ter for In­fec­tious Dis­eases Con­trol (KEEL) and the Euro­pean Union and rec­om­mended that Greek con­sumers show par­tic­u­lar cau­tion in wash­ing veg­eta­bles, par­tic­u­larly those eaten raw.
