Are Rose Galls Contagious To Humans

Question From: Walnut Creek, California, United States
Q: Are rose galls or agrobacterium tumefaciens contagious to humans due to the DNA altering nature of the hosts of these growths? I have them, have removed them and now a bit concerned about extracting the problem to humans and animals. Thank you Nancy very much.

A: I have no information regarding this issue and would not be qualified to comment. Best Nancy
