The growers are not technically suing the FDA, rather they are suing the federal government, Baker said.

According to the lawsuit, retailers and foodservice operators canceled orders when the FDA issued the warnings during the summer of 2008. Growers contend that tomato prices dropped from $18-$19 to $4 per box, with some growers saying they had to sell their 2008 spring tomato crop for as low as 50 cents per box.
