Sweet Grape Tomatoes Recalled Due To Salmonella Concern

Grape tomatoes from a California farm are being recalled due to Salmonella contamination, according to  recent news sources.

Andrew Williamson Fresh Produce, a San Diego based company, has recalled 640 cases of the grape tomatoes, totaling about 5,120 pounds. The tomatoes were grown in Baja, California and shipped to Oregon, from which they were distributed to several locations.

The Food and Drug Administration informed the company of the contamination after they found that the tomatoes tested positive in a routine sample test on produce in Michigan.

The tomatoes were distributed from September 1 through September 27. The product subject to recall is the sweet grape tomato called Olivia, of the company’s snack line. Production at the farm has been halted until the source can be confirmed and taken care of.

No illnesses have currently been reported.

As an Everett personal injury attorney I have seen food recalls like this one and know that, with as much testing goes into food products before manufacturers send them to market, mistakes can still be made. Although the personal injury lawyer at our law firm does not handle these type of cases there are food recall lawyers out there that can help your or a loved one if you have been affected by a recall such as this one.
