I'm feeling a bit guilty now, about highlighting this 'liver fluke' issue.

Be assured that the stuff you buy from supermarkets and other retailers will be commercially grown and represent absolutely no risk...as will that grown in the garden & allotment.

Not sure about sheep specifically, Rb, but the parasite finds its way into the water courses where the watercress grows via the droppings of drinking cattle etc.

No wish be a party pooper and I don't think it's relevant in this instance. However, I would advise anyone who forages or buys watercress from an unknown source to familiarise themselves with the dangers of contracting liver fluke from it.
