[Market-farming] Tomato Salmonella

In New Jersey we are a major tomato producing state. If this had happened a month from now our industry and reputation would have been ruined. Remember E coli in spinach? my state is the fifth largest spinach producer and 70 small farms lost there market just because of some fool on a farm 2500 miles away. As small direct market farms we are not under as strict a regulatory microscope as the large growers. We have a special responsibility to take every precaution to sell a safe product...Think about getting a third party certification guide and voluntarily follow it... Bob.

Just wondering:  Are small farms losing their ability to sell the types 
of tomatoes being affected by the salmonella-tomato situation?  Does 
anyone know if the varieties of tomatoes that are carrying the unusual 
strains of salmonella are GMO?

Best wishes to all,
