Salmonella in Our Food

Evidently food contamination is this year’s next big thing. First it started with spinach, then carrot juice, and now health officials believe a recent salmonella outbreak is linked to lettuce and tomatoes—the salad industry must be annoyed. Mike Stobbe of the Associated Press has more:
Health officials think the bacteria may have spread through some form of produce; the list of suspects includes lettuce and tomatoes. But the illnesses have not been tied to any specific product, chain, restaurants or supermarkets.

No one has died in the outbreak, which stems from a common form of salmonella bacteria. Eleven people have been hospitalized, health officials said.
The CDC discovered the outbreak using a national computer system; the states involved are Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
