WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A seasoning mix may be the source of salmonella bacteria that contaminated Veggie Booty snacks earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday. Sixty-one children in 19 states became ill between March and June in an outbreak of foodborne illness, said the FDA. The FDA said its tests confirmed a strain of salmonella was responsible.
