We're from the government and we're here to help you

News from The Associated Press: "WASHINGTON (AP) -- As salmonella cases continue to climb, the government is checking if tainted tomatoes really are to blame for the record outbreak - or if the problem is with another ingredient, or a warehouse that is contaminating newly harvested tomatoes.

The widening outbreak - with 810 people confirmed ill - means whatever is making people sick could very well still be on the market, federal health officials warned on Friday."

So basically the feds don't know if it was a tomato issue at all, after telling us it was, and they don't know what else it might have been if it wasn't tomatoes, and they don't know whether it is tomatoes or something else that is still out there on the shelves making people sick.

Thanks for the information. Very helpful.
