Default tomatoes in cat food harmful?

Well I recently purchased a bag of Purina one beyond salmon and whole brown rice recipe.
it says its accented with cranberries, TOMATOES, and spinach. I did not notice this at first as I was mainly looking at the first 5 ingredients,protein,fat,etc.

it was planned to be in a mix with two other cat foods and the only thing in the ingredients is "dried tomatoe" and is 19th on the list of ingredients. I still can return it and will if I have to, I don't want it to hurt my baby.

I'm just curious because tomatoes are mainly on the list for harmful treats because of their acidity level right?
plus with it being so low on the ingredients and a mixture of two others would you still consider it as harmful? Or just not worth the risk.

I don't see a problem with it, the amount is so small that it's not going to have an effect on your hedgie. I know there are a few people that will feed very small pieces of tomato to their hedgies without any problems.

That's what I was thinking, but I'd prefer to be safe than sorry thank you
