It will probably be a good idea to cook thoroughly whatever sprouts you grow in these things.

I ended up putting my order on hold till I do some more research (Since I was getting these as a fun gift for my kids).

A vague article. They did not say what measures they recommend. I think washing the seeds and using good quality organic seeds, one should be ok. I would trust what I grow versus what is done commercially.

There are actually many others (including ones from the FDA). Google is a helpful tool.

You dont need to cook sprouts. The 30 "outbreaks" over the past 20+ years they discuss are likely from large sprouting farms. The bacteria doesn't come from the seeds - it is almost guaranteed it comes from the processing facilities where the environment is contaminated from runoff. There isn't going to be any CAFO runoff present in your house.

You can eat many sprouts as is.
