The U.S. Salmonella Saintpaul outbreak was discussed on one of my least favorite (but often watched) shows, The View, today. I do enjoy (note sarcasm here) a discussion of hot topics on the show, and sandwiched between Joy’s kidnapped blackberry and the Christie Brinkley divorce settlement was a discussion about Elisabeth’s fear of tomatoes. She shared with the audience that she hasn’t eaten tomatoes since the start of the outbreak.
Elisabeth (you may remember her from Survivor: Australia Outback) was quoted as saying "I haven’t had a tomato, and I love them, I miss them, but now apparently they are trying to pass the blame onto cilantro."
She went on to say that she thinks that is unfair, and that "the tomato should step up and take responsibility for what they are doing."
