Traced to an organic farm.  It has now moved to the US. 5 people now. One lady that visited in Germany...now a family member is sick. He wasn't in Germany. Pretty scary.

seems like it's something different every summer with the ecoli...I remember one year it was the lettuce I think.

 It makes it important to thoroughly wash all produce under running water, not in a container; even if it says it's been washed, even if it's organic and you think it's from a trusted source.
