Multistate Large Tomatoes 2006

A multistate outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium was associated with eating raw, large, red, round tomatoes at restaurants. Implicated tomatoes were traced to a single packinghouse in Ohio supplied by three tomato growers from 25 fields in three counties. Tomato production had ended by the time the packinghouse was implicated. As a result, FDA deferred the investigation until the next growing season and completed the investigation in August 2007.
