Tomato Recall Impacts Bay Area Grocers

Many of the tomatoes ended up in salad kits.

Salmonella tests at a Northern California farm came back positive and that has Bay Area groceries stores checking their ingredient lists and pulling products out of the produce section.

A grower notified Taylor Farms Pacific of Tracy that a specific lot of grape tomatoes may be contaminated with salmella and that lead to a voluntary recall.

The tiny tomatoes ended up at Safeway, Lucky, Raley's, Savemart and Walmart.

The FDA explains that salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes deadly  infections in the young, the old and the frail. Healthy people may experience fever, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The stores have placed notices in the produce or prepackaged salad areas. The list of impacted items can also be found at this link or at the below table.

So far, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall.
