Re: I believe sprouts are good for birds

The 2011 e-coli outbreak in Germany involved 3000 cases and 30 deaths and one in France. Both were linked to imported Egyptian Fenugreek seeds. The following year Spinach was linked to an E-coli outbreak in the US that sickened 16.

In 2012 the European Food Safety Agency endorsed strict hygiene measures for ready to eat sprouted seeds which included tightening traceability requirements for all seeds intended for sprouting.

Hopefully people will get what I am getting at?
