Anyone still eating raw sprouts of any kind?  I hope not!!!   In my microbiology labs, we always tested sprouts (bought at the local supermarkets) and detected E. coli.  They are not recommended for pregnant woman or the elderly as well as a problem for all people.  Beware!!!   The bacteria  (E. coli and Salmonella) can be in the seeds and cannot be washed off.  Only cooking will kill the bacteria.
