On May 30th FDA was first notified by the CDC of a group of patients made ill by a type of bacteria called salmonella. Since that time, hundreds of FDA experts have been working around the clock and established that the infection resulted from eating specific types of tomatoes. Illnesses have occurred now in 228 people across 23 states. We have not identified the specific farms or locations where the infected tomatoes came from, but we have identified many sources producing tomatoes that are quite safe as well as specific types of tomatoes that can be consumed without any concern.
