BORDEAUX - Two people suffering from E.coli infections in the French city of Bordeaux have the same strain as that which caused scores of deaths in Germany, French authorities said.

The French commerce ministry said it had ordered stores to suspend the sale of fenugreek, mustard and rocket seeds which the consumer safety authority believed had been supplied by British company Thompson & Morgan in the eastern town of Ipswich while a possible link to the illnesses was investigated.
