Cucumbers are spread on a field as fertilizer by French farmers who are unable to sell
Cucumbers are spread on a field to be used as fertilizer by French farmers who are unable to sell their produce in Carquefou near Nantes, western France, June 6, 2011. Authorities in Germany have yet to pinpoint the exact source of the three-week E.colli outbreak that has killed 22 people in Europe and stricken more than 2,200 in a dozen countries -- all of whom had been travelling in northern Germany. So far, bean sprouts, cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce have all been suspected of spreading the EHEC bacteria (enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli) bacteria.
