WASHINGTON- Two US military personnel based in Germany are suspected of having a dangerous strain of the E.coli bacteria that has so far killed 19 people in Europe, US health officials said on Friday.

The US Food and Drug Administration is inspecting shipments of Spanish and German vegetables to the United States but a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) official said there was no expectation the outbreak would spread to the United States.
