E.Coli hysteria: Germany and Czech Republic do not import cucumbers from Romania
The decision comes even though tests proved that our vegetables are safe. E.coli cucumbers killed so far 18 people and infected over 2,000 and experts at the WHO are overwhelmed by this situation. The economic effects are disastrous: German farmers lose 4 million euro per day and the business numbers for cucumbers dropped by 90%.
Italian producers have 3 million euro losses daily while the French reported a drop of sales by 80%.
