Fresh vegetables imported from Europe will be tested for the E-coli bacteria.

Many countries in Europe are hit by the E-coli outbreak. Sri Lanka is not badly affected as large quantities of vegetables are not imported from Europe. Only small quantities are imported to be used in tourist hotels and holiday resorts. The Health Ministry said that it is holding discussions with the Medical Research Institute on the possibility of sample testing these fresh vegetables imported from Europe.
