Sign of the absurd.... tomatoes

Mr. Taster | Aug 19, 2005 11:59 AM

Was in my local Ralph's supermarket yesterday (the biggest chain in Southern California), in the organic produce section. Saw a sign that said "Never refrigerate your tomatoes! Their natural sugars begin to break down under 50 degrees."

This sign was in front of a refrigerated tomato case whose thermostat (directly above the tomatoes) read 49.
