Swiss study finds E. coli bacteria in ice cubes

March 30, 2016 - From Barfblog.com: m
A Swiss study found that "more than a quarter of ice cubes used in Swiss bars and restaurants contain fecal bacteria such as E. coli." "The presence of bacteria including pseudomonas, E. coli and enterococci is “a clear sign of unsanitary production of ice cubes'. "The primary cause is a lack of hygiene in bars and restaurants, where ice machines may be badly cleaned and maintained."
