Six L’s of Immokalee, Fla. is recalling a single lot of grape tomatoes because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The strain of Salmonella has not been determined and no illnesses have been reported.
The specific lot of grape tomatoes was packed on April 11 and can be identified by the Cherry Berry lot code DW-H in either clam shells or 20 lb. cardboard containers. The grape tomatoes were distributed to North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Georgia and Canada, and reached consumers through retail stores and restaurant distribution.
The contamination was detected through a random sample obtained by the USDA at a distributor in New York. The product is from a farm in Estero, Fla. that has since ceased production of the tomatoes.
The recall does not include any other tomatoes or produce distributed by Six L’s.
Consumers who have purchased grape tomatoes that are part of the recalled lot may return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Six L’s at 877-606-1821, ext. 3955, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.© Food Safety News
