I think blaming this on a single restaurant is unfair and shows a serious misunderstanding of who is responsible.

I agree. The restaurant didn't taint the tomatoes with salmonella. They arrived that way. Unfair and damaging!

No one is blaming the restaurants. The FDA and DoH have a responsibility to isolate where cases occurred so that anyone who ate there and contracted the illness can identify the source. Without that information no one would have a clue as how to trace back the source.

Blaming Adobo would be like blaming parents who bought lead-tainted toys from China. It isn't Adobo's fault. Track down their tomato supplier. It is unfortunate that Adobo was a victim as well, but perhaps with such clear evidence of a source they can find the area and grower who is responsible and put all of this behind us.

How do I distinguish if I received salmonella poisoning over just eating some bad food? I mean I have had some moments where my insides felt like they were turned inside out from eating at some restaurants but I could never exactly trace it back to a certain food or even the exact meal.

Support local farmers and eat home grown! Get off the commercial food chain, and you'll never run these risks. I've enjoyed tomatoes the past two weeks, and love it!

I think it's good to know that FDA takes the tomato issue seriously but somehow it's going to "tomatophobia" which is weird.

While eating at the Adobo on Wells St I had something dripping on my head from a sewer pipe that runs along the ceiling. When I complained to the manager I was told it is just condensation and he would do nothing about it. I don't care if it is condensation or sewage or whatever else, I should not have been dripping on my head or our table. These guys are greedy profiteers who don't care about their customers. My advice, never eat at one of their restaurants again. Otherwise you risk you health.

Adobo clearly has no regard to their customers. I'm sure they knew if nine people were able to get sick. They need to be shut down immediately.
