Seriously, since when did 23 people, in a nation of 300 million, being hospitalized over salmonella poisoning become a national crisis? Are you kidding me?
Of those same 300 million folks last year, 42,642 were killed in automobile accidents. 42,642 people who are not feeling under the weather, but who are now under the ground, dead.
You and I buckle up each day and drive without thinking about the danger we face because the odds are very small that we will be involved in an accident. These same people hurling themselves down the road at 65 miles per hour in a small box made of sheet metal, plastic and glass won't order a burger with tomatoes because 23 people halfway across the country went to the hospital?
California tomatoes are safe, if you like tomatoes, eat all you want.
I bet they will be on sale.
