Now it looks like you can only eat tomatos you grow yourself, tomatos with the vine on, and a few other types. This is really puzzeling. I've seen how lettice is grown, picked and processed at least here in the U.S. There isn't much more that can be done here to protect that process that I could see. With other countries it's a different story. DDTs are still used in many countries and companies like DuPont and Monsanto will sell chemicals to agribusiness that we can't use here because they're outlawed here.
I noticed that Canada as usual is ahead of the game. They've stopped using uncooked tomatos in all restaurants until further notice.
With all the recalls and alerts on so many food stuffs maybe as they come up with biodegradable packaging it will be safe to eat the wrappers and throw the food out.
