Tomato Shortage Blamed on Hurricanes

Hurricanes and other severe weather means you might be seeing fewer tomatoes in dishes at local restaurants in the next few months.

Severe weather here in Florida and in California has heavily damaged crops and caused tomato prices to more than double.

Wendy's and Olive Garden say they're considering altering menus to combat the shortage.

Burger King says in some of its locations it will put up signs to tell customers there are no more tomatoes for their Whoppers.
