Tomato sprouts??

I cut into a tomato today and thought I saw a worm (gag!) but upon closer inspection it looked like a sprout.   A couple other tomatoes had the same and I think they might have started to sprout after being in my pantry for a week.   I knew the tomatoes where a little old, but they didn’t look like they’d spoiled yet so I was going to blend them up into salsa.   Does anyone know if it would be okay to eat the ‘sprouts’?   I seem to remember something about tomato plants being part of the night shade family and that you shouldn’t eat the plant, so I don’t know if that would also apply to a sprout, if that’s what they’re doing.
