I always wash and peel the skin off cucumbers anyway. The skin can give you a bad tummy so whip it off.


Dangerous advice

Tell that to my OH, he ends up doubled up in agony every time he eats the skin.

Cucumber contains small patches that taste bitter. These portions contain the extremely toxic tetracyclic triterpenoids or cucurbitacins compound. Excessive consumption of this compound can cause even death.

I believe you, but in the context of this thread its dangerous. These cucumbers are more dangerous what are talking about.

Serious issue was the reason I created this thread. Mother wasn´t the source of the information she had seen it on her local news, BBC West. As for the title, if it didn´t stand out for what it was then we wouldn´t get a debate going on the issue. Lets hope infected people get better and the virus under control.

Fox News is running major headlines on this story;"A massive E. coli outbreak across eight European countries has killed at least 16 and left another 1,150 sick"
www.foxnews.com...

I clicked over to some Euro news sites and it's quiet. Nary a single headliner.

On the news here in Germany that it´s not Cucumber from Spain causing this outbreak.

So as I said in my original post "is this a simple hygine issue or something else?"

So has ecoli spread to the UK en masse or not?

I have just read through this posting and watched the BBC news, (I know don't laugh, but they might say something of use sometimes) and I have seen no evidence of such.
