Recall Issued on Grape Tomatoes Found in Packaged Salads

Hemera Technologies/Thinkstock(IMMOKALEE, Fla.) -- Folks who try to eat healthy by enjoying ready-to-eat salads sold by popular retail stores throughout the U.S. might be exposing themselves to salmonella poisoning.

Florida-based tomato grower Six L's has announced a recall of grape tomatoes sold under the brand name Cherry Berry that were initially distributed in ten states and Canada but have since found their way into salads all over the country.

The products are sold at Albertsons, Raley's, Safeway, Savemart, Sam's Club, and Walmart stores.  The products containing the grape tomatoes include seafood salads, Mediterranean salads, green salads, quinoa salads, orzo salads, salads with chicken, chef salads, Cobb salads, Greek salads, and mozzarella salads.

Salmonella, though rarely fatal, can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea.  Symptoms generally last up to seven days.
