Are tomatoes the kickoff to food-illness season?

Ugh. Looks like our industrial food system is cranking out the salmonella for broad distribution again. That's the word from the latest Food and Drug Administration consumer alert. The current culprit: tomatoes. Where? Texas and New Mexico. Oh, and maybe Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, and Utah, too.

Thank goodness I know my tomato growers. You can know yours, too. Check out Local Harvest and the Eatwell Guide. It's also not too late to plant your own
