Contaminated vegetables

A farm worker shows a cucumber cut in half in a greenhouse in Algarrobo, near Malaga, southern Spain, on Tuesday, May 31, 2011. Angry Spanish farmers whose produce has been cited as a possible source of the deadly bacterial infection in Europe are watching in despair as machines grind their suddenly unwanted fruit and vegetables into compost and are particularly livid with Germany. Spanish agriculture associations accuse German officials of being trigger-happy in singling out two Spanish farm produce companies as sources of cucumbers tainted with E. coli before ascertaining if the vegetables were contaminated before leaving Spain or along the transport chain or while being handled in Germany itself.
