Bean sprout advisory continues

A province-wide advisory against consuming bean sprouts remains in effect in response to an outbreak of salmonella poisoning that exceeds 500 cases.

Two cases have been confirmed in the jurisdiction of the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, which participated in a conference call about the 14-day-old outbreak with other regional health units across Ontario.

No other cases have been reported since last week.

Susan Healey, communications co-ordinator with the health unit, said the province and its 36 health units are working in close co-ordination to ensure public safety.
