Tomatoes Linked To Salmonella Outbreak
CDC: U.S. Food Safety Hasn't Improved

(CBS/ AP) McDonald's says it has stopped serving sliced tomatoes in its restaurants over concerns about Salmonella food poisoning linked to uncooked tomatoes.

Spokeswoman Danya Proud said Monday the world's largest hamburger chain has stopped serving sliced tomatoes on all of its sandwiches in the United States as a precaution until the source of the salmonella is known.

Proud says McDonald's will continue to serve grape tomatoes in its salads because no problems have been linked to that variety.

The source of the tomatoes responsible for the illnesses in at least 16 states has not been pinpointed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said at least 23 people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported.

Investigations by the Texas and New Mexico Departments of Health and the U.S. Indian Health Service have tied 56 cases in Texas and 55 in New Mexico to raw, uncooked, tomatoes.

"We're seeing a steady increase," Deborah Busemeyer, New Mexico Department of Health communications director, said Saturday.

An additional 50 people have been sickened by the same Salmonella "Saintpaul" infection in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

Investigators are trying to determine if raw tomatoes also are responsible for the illnesses in those states, said Arleen Porcell, a CDC spokeswoman.

In response to the problem, the FDA has issued a tomato warning to consumers in all 50 states, reports CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes.

The rarity of the Saintpaul strain and the number of illnesses "suggest that implicated tomatoes are distributed throughout the country," she said.

Interviews conducted with 73 people found the illnesses began between April 16 and May 27, Porcell said.

Salmonella is a bacteria that lives in the intestinal tracts of humans and other animals. It usually is transmitted to humans by eating food contaminated with animal feces.

Most infected people suffer fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps starting 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness tends to last four to seven days. Many people recover without treatment, but severe infection and death is possible.



Mexico or other Foreign produce YET AGAIN? because of FREE TRADE AND OPEN BORDERS GLOBALISM??? NO safety inspections.

Re: Killer Tomatoes...
I think it is possible that the tomatoes were intentionally introduced to the salmonella strain as part of an effort by companies producing GM fruits and vegetables to scare off the public from eating natural organic produce. I believe this was the same reason for the tainted spinach a couple years ago.

Re: Killer Tomatoes...
Ok. slow the hell down folks. What happened was there were some cases in Texas of tomatoes giving people salmonella. I work in a restraunt and i heard about it pretty quick. Guys THEY WERE BAD TOMATOES! If a freakin plane crashes in my front yard and 65 people die, im not going to assume it was some black op to kill my family or some bullshit. THEY WERE BAD TOMATOES! And further more i think all tomatoes are bad. Tomatoes suck.

I just saw a vid...maybe it was nightline...not sure

anyways, they had a nice fix for grapefruits, to wash them with ozonated water, to kill bacteria....which is way better than radiation.
