St. Louis Company Recalls Grape Tomatoes
Front Row Produce, based in St. Louis, is recalling grape tomatoes that have the potential to be contaminated with the salmonella virus. The Food and Drug Administration along with the company is currently investigating the source of the problem.
Ten-ounce pint and 10-pounds bulk grape tomatoes are being recalled in Missouri and Illinois where Front Row Produce distributes its products. The grape tomatoes come from Rio Queen Citrus of Mission, Texas. It was through Rio Queen Citrus that the contamination was discovered during random testing of the produce.
No illnesses have been reported at this time. But the most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever that can occur within 8 hours to 72 hours of eating the contaminated product. For those with a weakened immune system, the virus can be life threatening.
