German Sprouts are the New Spanish Cucumbers

After all of the trash talking and "cucumber slurs" between Germany and Spain over where the deadly "mutant" E. coli outbreak originated, we may finally have the culprit: sprouts from a farm in Uelzen, Germany. Samples from the farm are being tested now. A German agriculture official told the BBC that "a connection has been found involving all the main outbreaks" and the farm in Uelzen. Uh, sorry Spanish cucumber farmers!

Farmers and politicians in Spain are now seeking some 400 million euros in damages from Germany after officials there wrongly blamed Spanish cucumbers for the outbreak.
