two cases of cigarettes and cash from the register. No customers
were in the store during the robbery, and the clerk was not injured.

Tomatoes pulled from shelves
A nationwide salmonellosis outbreak linked to
certain raw tomatoes has some fast-food restaurants serving
tomato-free hamburgers and other dishes. At least one grocery store
has pulled some tomatoes from its produce department and another
food supplier said it was suspending shipments of the suspect
tomatoes at least temporarily. Health officials say that An
outbreak of salmonella poisoning linked to uncooked tomatoes has
been reported in 16 states, and the Food and Drug Administration has
recommended that consumers not eat tomatoes unless they are from
certain “safe areas.” The tomatoes that are believed to have caused
the outbreak are certain raw red Roma, raw red plum, raw red round
and products that contain those type tomatoes. The FDA reports that
Since mid-April there have been 145 reported cases of salmonellosis
in 16 states, including 23 hospitalizations. Cherry tomatoes, grape
tomatoes and tomatoes sold with the vines still attached or
home-grown tomatoes are not affected by the FDA warning. One food
supplier, said his company has not been contacted by the FDA but
that it would suspend shipments of the possibly affected tomatoes
for a day while it gets additional information from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture as to the origin of the problem. Several
fast-food restaurants contacted, including Subway, McDonald’s,
Burger King, Wendy’s and Taco Bell, said they are not serving
tomatoes because of the FDA warning that was issued.
