Tomato Scare: Over!

For the salsa starved: The FDA says says it's OK to eat tomatoes again. Investigators still don't know what caused the salmonella outbreak, which now has sickened 1,220 people in 42 states, and the tomato recall caused an estimated $100 million loss to the industry. Oh, and about that salsa: Jalapeno and serano peppers, and maybe even cilantro, are now under the microscope, but the government isn't issuing a full recall, just a warning to "people most at risk of salmonella---including the elderly and people with weak immune systems."
