Salmonella contamination prompts tomato recall
Concern over salmonella contamination has prompted a voluntary recall of certain types of tomatoes.
From the Associated Press:
A Florida tomato grower is voluntarily recalling its grape tomatoes after a sample tested positive for salmonella.
Six L's Packing Company Inc. said in a statement Monday that no illnesses had been reported in connection to the recall as of April 29.
The Immokalee, Fla.-based company says the recalled product was packed on April 11 under the Cherry Berry lot code DW-H in clam shells or 20-pound cardboard containers. The tomatoes were distributed to California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia, as well as Canada.
The tomatoes also were used in deli salads made by Tracy-based Taylor Farms Pacific Inc. The salads were sold in Albertsons, Raley's, Safeway, Savemart, Sam's Club and Walmart stores across the West and some Midwestern states.
