Sprouts grown in Germany are the likely source for an E. coli outbreak that has killed 22 people, officials said Sunday.
Gert Lindemann, agricultural minister of Lower Saxony, said there is a "direct link" between a company in the town of Bienenbuettel and "these people getting sick." The firm has been shut down and its products have been recalled, Lindemann said.
