Picked by slaves

Put down that winter tomato. It was probably picked by slaves!

Gourmet Magazine online has an article online written by Barry Estabrook called Politics of the Plate: The Price of Tomatoes that is a must-read.

Keep an eye on where your produce comes from and when it is showing up in the grocery store. I live in Ontario, Canada so, when I see hothouse tomatoes grown that are a product of Canada, I'm pretty sure no slave labour was involved in the harvesting of them.
