Retiran semillas por brote de E-coli en Alemania y Francia

La firma Thomson & Morgan admitió que tres de sus semillas pueden tener relación con la epidemia

La firma exportadora de semillas Thomson & Morgan, con sedes en Inglaterra, Estados Unidos y Canada, anunció en un comunicado que tres de sus semillas pueden tener relación con el brote epidémico de la bacteria Escherichia coli EHEC y el Sindrome Hemolítico Urémico (SHU) en Alemania y Francia, que ha causado 48 muertos y cerca de 4 mil enfermos graves en las últimas semanas.

Thomson & Morgan aclaró que se están haciendo los estudios de germinación de las semillas para determinar si efectivamente éstas son las causantes del brote epidémico.

“Aunque no se ha establecido la conexión, como la salud y la seguridad del público son siempre de suma importancia, hemos retirado temporalmente de la venta de las siguientes variedades como medida de precaución”. De esta manera, la firma sugiere “no comer” los siguientes productos:

  • Brotes de semillas cohete (Sprouting Seeds Rocket )
  • Brotes desemilla mostaza blanca (Sprouting Seeds White Mustard )
  • Mezcla de semillas para sándwiches (Sprouting Seeds Sándwich Miz )
  • Mezcla de brotes para ensalada (Sprouting Seeds Salad Sprouts Mix )

En el caso de que alguien tenga alguna de estas semillas sembradas, la firma pide que se deben meter en una bolsa y eliminarlas.

“La Semillas que ya han sido cultivadas deben ser removidas de cualquier ambiente de la cocina, sin sacarlas de su lugar de cultivo o contenedores. El contenedor de cultivo y las semillas se deben ser embolsados ​​y colocados en el cubo de la basura del hogar, y después deben lavarse las manos. El área de cultivo en contenedores se debe limpiar con un paño desechable y desinfectante de grado alimenticio. Esta es una medida de precaución, ya que el riesgo de ser contaminado por las semillas es muy bajo”, informó Thomson & Morgan en su comunicado público.

La Agencia Alimentaria “Food Standards Agency” (FSA ) de Inglaterra reitera lo informado en Alemania, respecto de que los alimentos se podrían comer si están bien cocidos y calientes, no crudos.

Por su parte, la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), el Instituto Roberth Koch y los centros de prevención recalcan que, además de comer los productos cocinados, se debe extremar las medidas de higiene en las manos, sobre todos al usar los servicios higiénicos.

El último balance de enfermos señalado por el Centro de control de Enfermedades de Europa indica que hay 880 casos de Síndrome Hemolítico Urémico (SHU) causados por la toxina Shiga de la bacteria Escherichia coli, de los cuales 31 fallecieron.

Asimismo, hay 3.039 casos de diarrea enterohemorrágica por la bacteria E.coli EHEC, de los cuales 16 fallecieron.

De estos enfermos, en Francia se registran 7 casos de SHU y 5 casos de EHEC, sin incluir fallecidos.

(AP) — France’s health minister says experts are “99 percent sure” that the E. coli outbreak that put seven people in the hospital in Bordeaux region is the same strain of bacteria that killed 44 people — all but one in Germany.

Hospital officials say that three of the seven sickened are on dialysis, while a 78-year-old is in critical condition. Another person was released.

Health Minister Xavier Bertrand said that the strain appears to be the same as the one in Germany.

France halted the sale of fenugreek, mustard and arugula sprout seeds from British mail order seed and plant company Thompson & Morgan. The company says the link is unsubstantiated.

German officials attribute deaths there to a bean sprout farm in northern Germany.

E. coli outbreak in France – are seeds to blame?Advice from Which? about E. coli and seeds

27 June 2011

Thompson & Morgan

Rocket Seedlings

A famous British seed company has been implicated in
a new health scare in France, where 10 people have succumbed to illnesses associated with E. coli.

French authorities are still investigating the outbreak, which is centred around the French town of Bègles. At the time of writing, seven people are in hospital, including a 78 year-old woman in a serious condition.

The source of the E. coli outbreak appears to be from sprouted seeds of fenugreek, mustard and rocket, used at a school fair to garnish the plates of food. It is believed that visitors to the fair were able to take handfuls of the sprouted seeds to add to their dishes. Now French authorities believe that the seed itself could be to blame.

Thompson and Morgan, the company responsible for supplying the seeds, has said: ‘We note that the French outbreak seems to be localised to a specific event, which would indicate to us that something local in the Bordeaux area, or the way the product has been handled and grown, is responsible for the incident rather than our seeds.’

E. coli infections are usually associated with transmission of the bug via the faecal-oral method of transmission – meaning contaminated water used to grow or wash salads or vegetables is often to blame. However, T&M are cooperating fully with the relevant bodies to help them establish the source of this problem and see if it could have been from the seeds themselves.

Scientists from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have set up a task force to coordinate this and other investigations into E. coli contamination of sprouted seeds in the EU.

For now the Food Standards Agency are appealing for caution and say that people can eat bean sprouts as long as they have been thoroughly cooked – obviously not quite appropriate for a salad.

Whenever growing sprouted seeds, you should make sure that equipment is washed thoroughly, and that only tap-water is used to rinse and clean the sprouting seeds.

How should I dispose of any sprouting seed that I have grown?

Seeds that have already been grown should first be removed, remaining undisturbed in their growing container, from any kitchen environment. The growing container and seeds should then be bagged and placed in your household waste bin, after which you should thoroughly wash your hands. The growing container area should be wiped down with a disposable cloth and food-grade disinfectant. This is a precautionary measure as the risk of any seeds being contaminated is extremely small and no cases have been associated with these seeds in the UK.
