UK seed firm denies French E. coli link
Officials are investigating a possible link between seeds sold by a UK firm and an E. coli outbreak in France.
Ten people have contracted E.coli in Bordeaux.
It is thought a number of them had eaten rocket and mustard vegetable sprouts, believed to have been grown from seeds sold by Thompson and Morgan.
Helen Johns, a spokeswoman for the firm, said they had no evidence of a link and sold "hundreds of thousands of packets of these seeds" every year.
