A worker throws away cucumbers to be destroyed at an agriculture facility near Bucharest
A worker throws away cucumbers to be destroyed at an agriculture facility near Bucharest June 6, 2011 as sales collapsed in Romania's markets due to the fear of E.coli contamination. The workers from this facility are destroying about 1500 tonnes of harvested cucumbers from the last three days, despite negative E.coli laboratory tests, according to local media. The outbreak, centred on the north German city of Hamburg, has made more than 1,500 people ill in eight European countries, and led to an international row over the source of the contamination.

The "Erlenbach" runnel is pictured in Nieder-Erlenbach on the outskirts of Frankfurt, June 18, 2011. Health authorities announced that EHEC bacteria was found in the runnel which supplied the watering systems of nearby farms close to a purification plant. Some 37 people have been killed and more than 3,200 people have so far been taken ill with the E.coli strain, about a quarter of them developing a complication called haemolytic uraemic syndrome, which affects the blood, kidneys and nervous system. German health authorities have linked the EHEC bacteria (enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli) epidemic to contaminated bean sprouts and shoots from a German organic farm sold to consumers and restaurants across the country for eating in salads.

Since the E.coli outbreak in Germany, 1,2 Million of cucumbers were destroyed in Austria. The German government has been criticised at home and around Europe for failing so far to pin down the cause of the E.coli outbreak that has killed 27 and stricken more than 2,700 people in 12 countries. So far, bean sprouts, cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce have all been suspected of spreading the EHEC bacteria. REUTERS/Lisi Niesner (AUSTRIA - Tags: FOOD HEALTH)

On Tuesday the European Union offered farmers 150 million euros in aid to reimburse producers who have been unable to sell fruit and salad vegetables for nearly two weeks after being erroneously blamed for an E.coli outbreak in Germany". They want to fob us off with 150 million (euros). It's shameful, it's humiliating when losses in our country are above 350 million," Miguel Lopez, general secretary of the COAG farmers' union told reporters.

German Health Minister Daniel Bahr reacts during a news conference after a meeting with European Health and Consumer Policy Commissioner John Dalli in Berlin, June 8, 2011. Germany expects the death toll from the E.coli outbreak to rise although the number of new infections from the virulent strain of bacteria that has killed 24 people is likely to drop, the government said on Wednesday. Dalli urged Germany to seek the help of international experts in dealing with what may be the deadliest outbreak of EHEC bacteria (enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli) so far, which has stricken over 2,400 people in 12 countries. All cases have been traced back to near Hamburg in northern Germany. REUTERS/Tobias Schwarz (GERMANY - Tags: POLITICS SCI TECH HEALTH)
