The Azerbaijani Health Ministry has urged people to be cautious when consuming fruits and vegetables.
The Azerbaijani population should be cautious when consuming fruits and vegetables in connection due to the intestinal poisonings that have occurred in Germany, Disease Control Department head Viktor Gasimov, told Trend.
