Grape Tomatoes In Salmonella Recall

ST. LOUIS, Dec. 1 (UPI) — A St. Louis company says it is voluntarily recalling grape tomatoes supplied by a Texas grower because of possible contamination with salmonella.

In a release Thursday, Front Row Produce said it is recalling its 10-ounce pint and 10-pound bulk grape tomatoes supplied by Rio Queen Citrus of Mission, Texas.

The contamination was discovered after random testing by Rio Queen Citrus revealed the presence of salmonella in some 20-pound bulk containers, the release said.

The tomatoes were reportedly distributed throughout Missouri and Illinois to food service distributors and retail stores

The retail 10-ounce, clear plastic packages are marked with a Front Row Produce “Grape Tomatoes” label on the top of the package. Beginning Thursday, packages will have a green lot number sticker placed on the bottom side of each package.

Any packages not displaying this green sticker should be considered suspect and under recall, Front Row Produce said.

The 10-pound bulk grape tomatoes are packaged for wholesalers in a plain brown cardboard box labeled with lot number 2310801.

No illnesses have been reported, the company said.
