Default Termites in Mulch

I just received an e-mail regarding cheap mulch in Home Depot & Lowes which originated from termite-infested trees from New Orleans which came down in the hurricane. Now this mulch is being widely distributed (to help with the clean-up effort), but harbours termites. It seems I read recently about someone who discovered termites in the stems of their tomato plants, a problem they had never had before. And there was a news program about a termite infestation around here - unusual problem for this far north. Maybe they bought this mulch ? ....
