No enough that now the price for produce and other food is going through the roof. They now are telling us tomatoes may be contaminated with salmonella. What food scare are we to face next. And I always thought only food that contained protein could carry those little buggers.

Well if it is any consolation, they aren’t sure it’s the tomatoes! It could be chillies, hot peppers, jalapenos or something else too. So don’t worry about buying those red solanaceous herbs or Paradise Apples as the Germans used to call tomatoes. The peppers you are putting into your salad could be just as contagious!
