Suvarnabhumi International Airport has beefed up its measure to screen imported fresh food products in the wake of the current new E. coli outbreak in Europe.

Speaking about measures to prevent the new enterohaemorrhagic E. coli bacteria, Suvarnabhumi Airport Spokesperson Wilaiwan Natwilai said the airport has been strictly controlling products imported from European countries, particularly those facing the toxic E. coli spread.

Ms Wilaiwan continued that fresh foods, vegetables and fruits, flown from Europe will be randomly examined in every flight for the bacterial contamination.

In addition, Suvarnabhumi International Airport has also given greater importance to hygiene promotion at the airport. All toilets and pathways are cleaned more frequently while disinfectant sprays have been used to ensure adequate sanitation for passengers.
