I recd this from MDA today and thought you may be interested in how MI’s tomatoes fared in the analysis for Salmonella.
Michigan was OK'd last night and already appears on the FDA safe list
see web page: http://www.fda.gov/oc/opacom/hottopics/tomatoes.html.
MDA will be issuing a press release on this- hopefully today.
