Catsup to Poultry Any Day Now
Hold the tomato, hold the spinach
Extra bacteria does upset us,
All we ask is that you let us
Protect ourselves that way....
AUSTIN — Health officials have confirmed 35 cases of salmonella in Texas since a multi-state outbreak thought to stem from raw tomatoes started in mid-April.
As they work to determine the source, health officials are advising that people not eat any raw Roma or full-sized round tomatoes other than those sold attached to the vine or grown at home.
Excuse me? The only vegetable I'm growing at home is whatever colonizes on the vegetables I buy at the store before I get around to using them...
