"Give Me Spots On The Apples, But Leave Me The Birds And The Bees..."

And, aparrently, leave the E.Coli bacteria, too:
A person in Britain has been diagnosed with a lethal strain of E.Coli that has already killed five people in Germany.

Almost 300 people in northern Germany are in hospital and around 500 more are being tested for the infection.

Organic cucumbers from Spain are thought to be the source of the bacteria, but travellers to Germany are also being advised to avoid eating raw tomatoes and lettuce. (emphasis mine)
