      i wonder if it's from the fermented tea leaves. i realize it's not a common source of e. coli, but the fact that all burmese restaurants rely on semi annual trips to burma to bring them back has always made me worry...

        if it was the fermented tea leaves, other eateries using same tea leaves would have reported e-coli problems. so far, none have.

          More than likely the source started and ended in the bathroom.
