What happened to my tomatoes?

I planted 6 starters this summer, and they all grew into beautiful, huge, bushy plants and started to produce lots flowers and buds. In fact, they were the bushiest tomato plants I'd ever grown. The problem is that the buds fell off virtually every single plant, and produced no fruit. The little bend or 'crook' just below where the buds would sprout from just fell off in my hand when I would touch them. My local garden center guy said he'd never heard of this happening, and couldn't offer any help.
I think I did everything right -- watered regularly, fertilized, weeded. I saw no signs of spotting or yellowing on the leaves. I've grown tomatoes almost every year with varying results, but never had this happen before.
Any ideas or suggestions so I don't have a repeat of this next year? Thanks in advance for any help or recommendations.
