Romanian vegetable producers requested compensation worth 1.46 million euro from the European Commission following the losses incurred due to the E.coli cases in several European countries Romanian Agriculture minister Valeriu Tabara declared on Tuesday quoted by news agency Mediafax.

Each producer needs to recover his losses from that period, Tabara said. He said that Romania overcame the problem because it was treated seriously and sales are back to normal. The European Commission increased from 150 to 210 million euro the value of compensation offered for vegetable producers in the EU confronted with a decrease of sales due to the E.coli bacteria.
