German authorities said on Friday they detected the deadly E coli strain in a bean sprout package from the organic farm under in Lower Saxony, which had already been under investigation.

"According to our knowledge to date, the bean sprouts originated from the farm in Bienenbuettel," said the consumer protection agency from North Rhine Westphalia state, where the package was discovered.

"The discovery confirms our current warning against the consumption of bean sprouts. It is therefore becoming increasingly more likely that bean sprouts are the source of the E coli infections," Johannes Remmel, consumer protection minister in North Rhine-Westphalia said.
