Sorry if this is in the wrong place and sounds v paranoid, but i am 22 weeks pregnant. i live in the UK, and i know there are no links to food here yet, but should we stop eating salad/raw fruit/veg for the time being? anyone with any medical/scientific knowledge understand how to avoid this?
I think the current advice (which doesnt actually differ from previous advice anyway) is to wash all salad and fruit/veg before eating. They havent made clear yet exactly what is causing it or whether the e coli is in or on the food but washing carefully is what they are recommending atm
Am washing all mine but am growing some too, was a good excuse to buy some more plants and pots so look forward to my own healthy cucumbers. The guy at the nursery said they have nearly sold out of salad plants in te last couple of days due to the scare.
