Thanks for the info, esp since I live in WA. I wish we were told where & how it originated...from animal waste, mishandling, bad storage...???

This company was also investigated in 2011 for possible contamination. It seems the problem is unsanitary conditions overall.

I had never heard of raw clover sprouts but of course had to read the article because it mentioned Michigan.
