Six L's recalls grape tomatoes due to risk of Salmonella

May 5, 2011

Six L's, Immokalee, Fla., is voluntarily recalling a single lot of grape tomatoes, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The strain of Salmonella has not been determined, and no illnesses have been reported.

The specific lot was packed on April 11 and was comprised of grape tomatoes that can be identified by Cherry Berry lot code DW-H either in clamshells or 20-lb cardboard containers. The product was distributed to North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Georgia, and Canada, and reached consumers through retail stores and restaurant distribution.

The contamination was detected through a random sample obtained by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) at a distributor in New York. The product is from a farm in Estero, Fla., which has since ceased production of that commodity.

The recall does not include any other tomatoes or produce distributed by Six L's.
