Of those that have died, most are women 80 years of age and older.  They survived the bombing of World War II and died from eating cucumbers – go figure.

    Everytime I see an update on this story, the situation has gotten worse.
    Due to the lack of illnesses in Spain, I’d suspect that the cucumbers were cross-contaminated during storage/repacking in Germany either due to mishandling or mixing with cucumbers from the other suspect source country, Denmark. Germany needs to get this source nailed down quickly.
