Hugh Pennington, professor of bacteriology at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, told Al Jazeera that the outbreak is a "German problem".

"It remains a North German problem. The only people who have fallen ill are people who have been to Germany and have had food there," he said.

Pennington said that a case could be made for the banning of produce from EU countries, but that he did not think that "there is any case at all for banning food from any other country other than Germany because there is absolutely no evidence that any other produce from any other country has been involved in this outbreak".

"You could say, 'well, yes, let's be cautious about importing any German vegetables, but not from other countries, and particularly countries like Spain where there's absolutely no evidence that this bug lives at all."
