On April 29, the Six L's company of Immokalee, Florida recalled grape tomatoes that had been possibly contaminated with salmonella (“Cherry Berry” brand, lot DW-H). No illnesses have been reported. 

The tomatoes were initially sold in 10 states and Canada, but have since spread in distribution and been used in many salad products produced by Walmart, Safeway, Albertsons, Raley's, Saveart and Sam’s Club. These salad products are also now under recall by Taylor Farms Pacific Inc.

According to a WebMD article today, “The salad products include seafood salads, Mediterranean salads, green salads, quinoa salads, orzo salads, salads with chicken, chef salads, Cobb salads, Greek salads, and mozzarella salads.”
