Salmonella Outbreak

Restaurants seem to be getting a bit worried about salmonella in tomatoes. Reuters reports that:

McDonald's Corp said on Monday it has temporarily stopped serving sliced tomatoes on its sandwiches in the United States as health officials work to pinpoint the source of a Salmonella outbreak.

And earlier today, my wife stopped by a local In and Out Burger joint only to find that they too had sworn off tomatoes. It is also being reported that Winn Dixie grocery stores are removing certain varieties of tomatoes from their shelves.

News like this makes homegrown veggies all the more appealing!
