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 plant watering system is seen shut down at a farm where E.coli bacteria was found in Nieder-Erlenbach on the outskirts of Frankfurt, June 18, 2011. Health authorities announced that EHEC bacterias were found in a nearby runnel which supplied the farm watering system 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.

More than 1,600 people have been infected by a toxic strain of E.coli bacteria that has killed at least 17 and may be the deadliest yet in human history. Latvian government officials on Thursday informed media of stringent monitoring and control over its food sources, and the country has yet to be hit with any E.coli related cases.

Spain said on Monday there was no proof that cucumbers from its growers had caused an outbreak of E.coli in Germany that had killed 14 people and that it would be demanding to know why its farmers had been blamed. An E. coli outbreak linked to contaminated cucumbers that has also made more than 300 seriously ill in Germany has spread to other north European countries and is expected to worsen in the coming week. The E. coli pathogen has been identified on cucumbers imported from Spain but it is unclear if they were contaminated there, during transport or in Germany.

Almost 35 million people across five provinces on the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze have been affected to different degrees by the drought, the Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs said last week. That number includes 4.2 million who have difficulty getting drinkable water. Direct economic losses are nearing 15 billion yuan ($2.3 billion), it said. Farmers said they would need generous rainfall in coming weeks, or the first of their two annual rice crops could wither and die, and more of the thousands of fish and crab farms could lose all their stock.
