Safeway billboard: unfortunate timing

Noticed this billboard today in Shoreline near the intersection of 175th & 15th, just west of the Safeway grocery store. They may be wishing they'd used a photo of cucumbers, or red peppers, or cabbage. Pretty much anything but tomatoes. Oh well, just an unfortunate coincidence. And yes, I know not all tomatoes are under suspicion. But still, it caught my eye and seemed like a bit of unfortunate timing.

  1. Maybe it is referring to a particularly robust strain of Salmonella? Guaranteed!
