McDonald's Pulls Tomatoes From Sandwiches

  • June 10, 2008
As a precaution, the company has decided to wait to discover the source of potential salmonella poisoning, a spokeswoman said on Monday.

At least 16 states have reported illnesses due to uncooked tomatoes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said at least 23 people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported.

McDonald's will continue to serve grape tomatoes in its salads because no problems have been linked to that variety.
