California tomatoes were not even in production when the out break happened. The FDA gave CA a green light last Thursday as NOT being the source. Corporate America was asleep at the wheel on this one as well as our government. The outbreak started in late April, maybe because it was Native Americans in New Mexico first to get sick, no one did anything about it. Then it was found in Texas and other states. The word in the produce industry is that it is limited to a growing area in Mexico and one particular grower/shipper. Any time you have food/produce grown outside you run the risk of having animals "pooping" on your food. People don't seem to mind the insect parts and mouse feces in their peanut butter(?) So why all the fuss about a bacteria found in amphibian poop????

Better safe than sorry... This move will cost these fast food places thousands but at least it looks like they are looking out for our best interests. If a chain didn't do this, and someone ended up getting sick at their restaurant, they would get sued for not doing anything about it and would settle out of court to avoid bad publicity, costing them millions.

This recurring problem is completely avoidable by the simple, safe, economical and effective process of irradiation with gamma rays that kill the offending organisms without changing the nutritional value, taste or consistency of fruits, vegetables or meats. It has the added benfit of extending the usefull life of the products. It will happen when enlightened customers demand it and not before.

This recurring problem is completely avoidable by the simple, safe, economical and effective process of deportation that kills the incentive of the offending aliens. It will happen when enlightened customers demand it and not before.

If everyone bought the produce grown in America and quit importing something we can grow right here there would be no problem!
