E coli outbreak: bean sprouts may not be to blame 6.6.2011 Guardian: Science
Organic farm in Germany tests negative so far for bacterium, throwing source of contamination into doubt again An investigation into a deadly outbreak of E coli has been thrown into chaos after laboratory tests showed that bean sprouts grown near Hamburg, which had been identified as the likely source, are possibly not to blame. German officials had said they were confident that sprouts from the organic Gärtenhof farm in Lower Saxony were behind the spread of a particularly virulent strain of the bacterium. There were "strong and clear indications" that the farm was involved, the federal health minister, Daniel Bahr, said. However, Lower Saxony's agriculture ministry said 23 of 40 samples from the farm had now tested negative for the E coli , with 17 more tests still being done. "The search for the outbreak's cause is very difficult as several weeks have passed since its suspected start," the ministry said in a statement, while warning that the negative tests did not conclusively ...

Are There Toxins in Your Compost? 6.6.2011 Mother Jones
Last month, at a vast composting yard owned by a Northern California waste and recycling company, Recology , I watched a load of lawn and food scraps from San Francisco residents get fed into a sorting machine. A spinning cylinder resembling a supersized cheese grater sifted out tidbits like lime wedges and grass clippings and spit the chunkier items onto a platform, where a worker in a neon vest plucked out plastic bags and an aerosol can of glass cleaner—just a few of the hundreds of pieces of contraband that he'd cull that day. I asked if he ever let anything slip by. "Sometimes," he said with a sheepish smile. I later ran my hand through a ripened compost pile and felt little pieces of glass and plastic mixed in with the fertile humus. As thousands of cities have begun composting yard waste and hundreds more begin collecting food scraps on a large scale, new questions are emerging about what kinds of things make their way into compost and whether any of them pose a threat to humans and ...

Death toll rises to 21 as number of cases increases to 2,200, with bean sprouts thought to be to blame German hospitals are struggling to cope with the surge in patients caused by the E coli outbreak, as the death toll from the virus rose to 21. The health minister, Daniel Bahr, said hospitals in northern Germany were finding it difficult to provide enough beds and treatment for patients, with the total number of cases increasing to 2,200. "We're facing a tense situation with patient care," Bahr said, "but we will manage it."
