Hands-free faucets harbor germs, Johns Hopkins study says: a team at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore has discovered that at their facility, electronic faucets were more likely to be contaminated with Legionella bacteria than the old-fashioned manual type. It is believed the bacteria counts are higher in the electronic faucets because they have a complicated system of valves that is difficult to clean, researchers said.

Study: Auto Faucets Have More Bacteria Than Manual Sinks
John Hopkins Hospital Replaced Faucets In Light Of Findings
When compared to water samples from old-fashioned manual faucets, the electronic ones had 50 percent more bacteria growing in them, and the bacteria grew much faster, the study showed. Bova and his team said they believe the parts that make up the motion-censored technology are to blame. There are a lot of little grooves and folds to the plastic parts where bacteria can get trapped, he said.
