May 3, 2011 – Grape tomatoes possibly contaminated with salmonella have found their way into ready-to-eat salads sold by Albertsons, Raley's, Safeway, Savemart, Sam's Club, and Walmart stores.

The grape tomatoes had been recalled on April 29 by Six L's of Immokalee, Fla. The recalled lot of grape tomatoes were sold under the brand name Cherry Berry and marked with the lot code DW-H. They were sold in clamshell packages as well as in 20-pound cardboard containers.

The grape tomatoes were distributed in 10 states and in Canada, but then spread out through retail and restaurant distribution.

Yesterday, Taylor Farms Pacific Inc. of Tracey, Calif., recalled salad products it had made using the recalled grape tomatoes.

The salad products include seafood salads, Mediterranean salads, green salads, quinoa salads, orzo salads, salads with chicken, chef salads, Cobb salads, Greek salads, and mozzarella salads.

The grape tomatoes originally were distributed in Canada and in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina.

Recalled Salads With Grape Tomatoes

The salad products were sold in 13 Western states. The stores, products, identifying markings, and states identified to date are:
