The Salmonella Outbreak

It may NOT be the tomatoes.  The number of people sickened by salmonella nationwide is now more than 800.  The outbreak is widening.

This weekend, the CDC and FDA are checking to see if tomatoes really are to blame.

From the beginning, some patients told doctors the tomatoes they ate were in salsa and guacamole.  Since then, the FDA began urging consumers to avoid raw red plum, red Roma, or round red tomatoes – particularly those grown in Florida and New Mexico.

But tonight, as the outbreak continues and the facts change, the record outbreak may be blamed on another ingredient, or a warehouse somewhere contaminating newly harvested tomatoes.

See the CDC or the FDA for the latest information.
