Tomatoes Pulled From Store Shelves

Posted:

The contaminated tomatoes we told you about Tuesday night on NewsChannel 11 at 10 have been pulled from produce aisles across Lubbock.

Certain tomatoes have been targeted for a recent outbreak of Salmonella in Texas.

The tomatoes include any Roma tomatoes or Field Grown Round tomatoes.

"It's too early to tell when the product will be back in the shelves. We are literally waiting for additional word from the FDA, and as soon as we've been cleared and feel comfortable putting the product back out we will do so immediately," said Eddie Owens, United Supermarket.

Meantime, all other tomatoes are confirmed okay.

So if you're shopping and you see tomatoes, what you find on the shelves are fine to buy.
