F rom crime to bad drivers to money, the range of topics that put frowns on faces is long and diverse. But it is probably fear of the unknown that tops most lists. So when the federal government issues warnings that a certain food is the cause of a nationwide salmonella outbreak, it’s understandable that people will err on the side of caution. Such was the case with this sum- mer’s tomato scare. What began in April as an isolated spike in salmonella cases soon spread until the number of confirmed cases hit 1,220 in 42 states. Across the country, restaurants altered recipes and menus, grocers dumped inventory and farmers watched plump red tomatoes die on the vine.
