But, alas, McDonald's has stopped serving raw sliced tomatoes. And that's because of an apparent salmonella poisoning issue. The same is the case for Taco Bell, which I find perplexing. I mean, if you eat Taco bell, aren't you expecting projectile diarrhea? I would think salmonella would only enhance the authentic Mexican dining experience.
Here in Connecticut, tomatoes are under scrutiny as well. It's very frightening.
We all know that the failure of a vegetable can destroy a nation. Look at the Irish potato famine.
Thankfully, there doesn't appear to be any danger or shortage of potatoes... imagine America convulsing during a french fry famine. Why, obese children would be forced to drink more soda and eat more Twinkies to keep their weight up. Can you imagine the tragedy?
