BERLIN, June 3 (Reuters) - Germany has not yet identified
the source of a deadly E.coli outbreak and still recommends not
eating raw salad vegetables like cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes
in northern Germany, a health ministry spokesman said on Friday.
The German government has set up an E.coli task force and
Chancellor Angela Merkel has talked to Spanish Prime Minister
Jose Luis Rodriguez-Zapatero about the impact on Spanish farmers
initially blamed for the outbreak, a government spokesman said.
