One more reason to eat organic, homegrown, and local tomatoes:
State health officials Tuesday warned consumers to avoid eating uncooked tomatoes believed linked to an outbreak of potentially deadly salmonella poisoning in Texas and eight other states.
The state health department warned against eating uncooked Roma tomatoes and larger round tomatoes. Smaller round tomatoes sold attached to the vine and homegrown tomatoes were exempted from the alert.
Not to mention, does anyone notice how nasty tomatoes taste these days?
Homegrown is the way to go, if they make it through the Texas heat.
