Deadly cucumbers hit Germany

Jump to last reply

and no one knows exactly how/where/why.
Unfortunately, it was stated to the press that they were infected Spanish cucumbers and now most countries are closed to the fruit/vegetable food transport out of Spain, including Russia.

At least 15 dead, another is in the hospital in Spain who was in the Hamburg area 9 days ago. They are still trying to figure out where these vegetables got infected with E-coli. Seems the fields in Spain are clear of the bacteria and no one here has been infected nor the local workers of that area. This is very scary.

Hopefully they will determine where this problem is originating from before anymore unsuspecting people die.

In the meantime, needless to say, not many Germans are eating any type of salad.

Such a shame.
