Interesting Food - Cucumber

According to a Harris poll carried out for the Metro newspaper, one in six people in the UK, 14%, have stopped or plan to stop eating cucumbers.

(This follows the world’s worst E.coli outbreak, which has so far killed 33 people since May 2011, and left more than 3,000 people ill in Germany. The funny thing is that although Senor Cucumber was initially blamed, beansprouts have now been singled out as the likely culprits, but it looks as if the British consumer will use any excuse not to eat their veggies.)
