Bacteria E. coli in Greece?

Here in Greece it doesn't really excist any worry over the deadly bacteria Escherichia coli. There is not any report yet about anyone that has gotten the infecton here in the country. A German tourist got sick, but she was infected from Germany. She is well now and back in her country.

From Greek media you get to know that there is no reason to worry, but as always you should keep good hygiene, especially when cooking, to rinse the vegetables well and to not let uncooked meat be in contact with vegetables that you will eat raw - Remember to use different cuttingboards! Important to always wash your hands well and so on.

(Have to admit though that I choosed the small Cretan cucumbers last time at the market...)
