Could the salmonella tomato outbreak hurt or help local farmers?
Farmers say they are worried the market is weak after the scare.
Two local tomato growers from Sodus, Michigan are slow to plant their crops this year.
They say usually by this time all of them are in the ground but with an uncertain market they've been told to wait.
“Normally we are talking to the chain stores setting up ads for tomatoes usually by the second week of July. I'm shipping to a couple of chains on tomatoes and last we heard was that we are holding off until we hear about what's going on,” says tomato farmer Russ Costanza.
Farmers say all they can hope for is that by the time their tomatoes are ready for market all of this will have blown over and people will be ready to buy.
