What’s wrong with Australian recall notices: Sprout Garden alfalfa and onion sprouts

The food safety recall notices issued by Food Standards Agency – Australia/New Zealand don’t say much.

Below is the notice but what I’d want to know is: what kind of E. coli; how was it found; is anyone sick; should people eat raw sprouts?

AlfaOnionFrontToo much for the communication geniuses on taxpayer salaries.

Belmore Bean Factory Pty Ltd has recalled Sprout Garden Alfalfa and Onion Sprouts from the Sydney Markets (Flemington) and fruit and vegetable stores in NSW due to E.coli contamination. Food products contaminated with E.coli may cause illness if consumed. Consumers should not eat this product and should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
