The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, FDA, has announced a voluntary recall by Andrew Williamson Fresh Produce of one lot of organic grape tomatoes sold under the Limited Edition® and Fresh & Easy labels due to a possible health risk from Salmonella.
The recall notice is being issued because one clam shell of Limited Edition organic grape tomatoes tested positive for Salmonella in a random sample collected and tested by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Michigan.
No illnesses have been reported in association with this product.
The organic grape tomatoes are sold in 10.5 ounce plastic “clam shell” containers containing UPC code 033383655925, located on the front of the label, below the barcode.
