Tomato Recall: No Salsa Today

Restaurants, fast-food chains and supermarkets across Southern California removed tomatoes from their shelves and menus this weekend due to a salmonella outbreak. The FDA said consumers should avoid raw red plum, red Roma or round red tomatoes, which have been tied to 145 salmonella infections since mid-April. While the reports don't specifically target any one restaurant, it's said the tomatoes were used in "the preparation of fresh salsa, guacamole and pico de gallo...They may be part of salads, fillings for tortillas and other dishes," so chains like Chiptole and Taco Bell are taking precautions. After investigations, it was found that the culprit tomatoes were not grown in California.
