Tons of Fresh Produce Tossed in Germany

You've all probably heard about the E.coli scare in Germany by now. They believe they've traced the start to the outbreak to fresh produce that had become contaminated. I read this article today and it made me so sad. It seems that since the scare, people are staying away from fresh produce. Farmers are literally having to throw away perfectly good tomatoes because they can't sell them. How heartbreaking!

Monsanto is probably behind it somehow, probably a scare tactic so the public will want their GMO poisoned food. It just proves that we should grow as much of our own vegetables as we can.

It made me sad that all that fresh produce was going to waste.
