Authorities have identified the source of the weeks-long outbreak as being vegetable sprouts from an organic farm in Lower Saxony, northern Germany.

The farm has been closed and all its products recalled. The farm cultivated sprouts from a variety of products including lettuce, azuki beans, mung beans, fenugreek, alfalfa and lentils.

These "organic" farms rely more on manure than on synthesized fertilizers and this is of course how the e-coli is spread.  If this leads to the "organic" cultivation of crops falling into disfavour, I would not shed a single tear.
