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.
