>Eat your fruits and vegetables, but be careful

>Fruits and vegetables are prone to harboring various harmful diseases in the summertime – such as the recent outbreak of salmonella. The FDA has recently announced more cases of this outbreak in more than 30 states bringing the total to at least 383 cases.

In order to avoid getting sick this summer time take certain precautions when picking out your favorite grocery store items. Properly cooking meat, poultry and eggs, and washing produce are generally the best methods to prevent illness.

Now, in a Marketing sense, what will happen to those fruits and vegetables grown in the sunshine state? Should consumers avoid those products and shift more towards locally grown – or was this just a fluke?
