Health officials issue alfalfa sprouts advisory

THD reports that an individual in Tulsa was hospitalized with an E. coli infection suspected to have come from eating alfalfa sprouts.
E. coli infection occurs most commonly from eating undercooked, contaminated ground beef. Other known sources of infection include consumption of sprouts, lettuce, salami, unpasteurized milk and juice, and swimming in or drinking sewage-contaminated water.
Consumers can prevent e. coli infection by:
• Thoroughly cooking ground beef
• Avoiding unpasteurized milk and other high risk foods such as sprouts, lettuce, and salami
• Washing hands thoroughly
