Tomatoes: Culprits of Salmonella outbreak

Contaminated tomatoes and infected food service workers are suspected to be behind the Salmonella outbreak that has sickened 171 people in 19 states. //

Minnesota cases mainly occurred between Sep 12 and Oct 13 and when a pattern was noticed they contacted the CDC.

Medus said that a case-control study in Minnesota appeared to suggest that the contamination source may be tomatoes and that the five cases appeared to be linked to the same fast-food restaurant. She said, "Our study is pretty small, though. It would be nice to have more supporting information, so it's a little too soon to say."

Foodborne disease expert Craig W. Hedberg, PhD, an associate professor of environmental health sciences at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health in Minneapolis, called the outbreak fairly significant in its
