FDA Tomato Ban Lifted

17 07 2008

Tomatoes are again safe to eat, the Food and Drug Administration said Thursday, weeks after the food was blamed as a source of a salmonella outbreak in the United States and Canada.

The source of the outbreak of salmonella still isn’t known, but the FDA says tomatoes are safe.

The federal agency lifted its warning about tomatoes but left in place a warning about raw jalapeño and serrano peppers, having previously said those foods also may be linked to the outbreak.
