First of all, I don't believe veg restaurants have more incidences of e. coli than other types. I'd ask for evidence of that, if I were you. I'd bet it's something someone just made up.

The most common sources of e. coli are human and animal waste:

Secondly, if you look at incidences of e. coli in veggies, it almost always turns out the veggies were infected by meat or meat production. Either the person preparing the food used the same utensils on meat and veggies or the farm irrigated the crop with water contaminated with sewage from a nearby meat facility.
