The restaurant in Luebeck, Germany, being investigated after 17 people became ill with E. coli received supplies from Hamburg, the owner told ZDF television in an interview today.

Luebeck is about 65 kilometers northeast of Hamburg, which European Union Health Commissioner John Dalli said last week was the “epicenter” of the outbreak. Authorities investigated the restaurant as a possible source of cases in the outbreak, Luebecker Nachrichten reported last week.
