Salmonella contamination prompts Florida grower to recall tomatoes

Very Important Recall, just a heads up, my grandmother is currently suffering from ecoli in the bloodstream, it is so very important to wash your fruits and veggies and scrub them.  I remember as a kid picking fruits and veggies and eating without washing.  It should NEVER be done.  E-coli and Salmonella are deadly!

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.

Thanks for the heads up Jay 😉
