Today there is a grape tomato recall due to a salmonella scare in 13 states across the United States. Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming are all affected. These grape tomatoes could have been bought at Albertson’s, Raley’s, Sam’s Club, Savemart, Signature Cafe and Wal-Mart, with expiration dates of April 27 to May 9, 2011.
Salmonella is a form of bacteria that can cause

So if you live in these states please throw out your grape tomatoes or return them for a full refund.
If you are a health professional and a patient comes in with these symptoms in the 13 states above please check them for possible salmonella infection.
