    Spanish farmers, whose revenue has been devastated by the deadly E. coli outbreak, have given away an estimated 40 tons of farm produce in protest.

    They handed out tiny cherry tomatoes and heavy watermelons, sweet apricots and crisp peppers, purple eggplants, lettuce and white potatoes - the entire rainbow of Spain's farm bounty to draw attention to their plight.

    According to government estimate, Spain is losing $300m per week while, the farmers say the E. coli scare has been an absolute disaster for their livelihood.
