Killer Tomatoes – Again?

      No Comments on Killer Tomatoes – Again?

 

There is yet another salmonella scare. People in 9 states have fallen ill. I don’t think anyone has died – but salmonella is not fun.

Basically, you’ll spend your life for about 7 days, laying on the couch and running to the bathroom You’ll have cramps. You’ll be weak. I mean really weak. Yes, I speak from experience – and it’s not an experience I’d like to repeat.

 

This new outbreak is tied to raw large tomatoes – including Roma and red round tomatoes – were found to be a common factor in the 40 illnesses. But no farm, distributor or grocery chain has been identified as the main source yet.

 

It’s fairly easy to avoid these kinds of risks – especially this time of year. You can grow your own, or buy from local farmers.

 

Not only will they taste 200% better, but they’re healthier, and you support your local economy.

 

In any event, stay away from the types listed. Roma tomatoes have been in abundance in the grocery store, and cheap – so I imagine a lot of people have them in their house right now.

 

I was going to buy some yesterday as a matter of fact, but a little voice in my head said, “get your butt over to the farmstand.” So I didn’t buy them. I haven’t made it to the farmstand yet either, but this certainly is another incentive, isn’t it?

 

Stay Healthy!
