AFP - Scientific checks have failed to support the hypothesis that contaminated vegetables are behind a deadly bacteria outbreak in Europe, the EU's Reference Laboratory for E.coli in Rome said on Friday.

"Alarmism over the consumption of vegetables is not justified... since laboratory analyses do not support the hypothesis that contaminated vegetables were the source of the infection," the laboratory said in a statement.
