A little salmonella with your tomato

Both this Thursday and last Thursday, I went to the Farmers market and stocked up on fresh produce, especially tomatoes, since they were such a great price! I love the farmer's market!

Now that I'm back from my errands for the day, I read this article: Food Poisoning Outbreak Linked to Tomatoes.

Yum. Okay, tonight's menu needs to have a slight change of plans. I know the risk of my tomatoes also being infected is small, but I just can't eat them now. Guess it's zucchini again tonight.

Oh my son would be in the hospital with poisoning if his tomatoes were contaminated. He loves them and I only wash with water. I know I should use that veggie wash, but I just not that perfect. I say eat the tomatoes and I will send flowers to your hospital bed if it doesn't work out.
