It is a specific batch of cucumbers from which there is no event associated with this outbreak in Spain.

According to the researcher of the CSIC and the national centre of biotechnology Miguel Vicente, some varieties of this bacterium are perfectly harmless and carry them with us throughout life, do not produce problems in the body. However, says Vicente this variety is less frequent, the e. Coli Enterohaemorrhagic, produces a series of toxins that in enough quantity, pass into the bloodstream.
