McDonald' s Corp. said Monday it has temporarily pulled tomatoes from its sandwiches in in the United States, a precautionary move in the wake of a salmonella outbreak.

Since mid-April, 145 people in at least 16 states have been infected with the bacteria known as Salmonella Saintpaul, which has been linked to raw tomatoes. The bulk of the cases have been in Texas and New Mexico, and 23 of them have required hospitalization.

In response, Oak Brook-based McDonald's, the nation's largest restaurant company, pulled tomatoes from its premium chicken sandwiches and the Big N' Tasty burger Friday. The company has not detected salmonella bacteria in any of its tomato supplies, said McDonald's spokesman Bill Whitman.

"But with an abundance of caution, we want to make sure our food items containing tomatoes are absolutely safe," he said.

The suspect tomatoes were removed from HEB. WE bought some of those that were left and had one last night. I think MacDonald's was smart to pull them from the menu, however.

This is the reason you ought to only eat those tomatos from your next door neighbor's garden.

I live right near the tomato capital of the US. Just bought two humongous tomatoes from a local farm stand. I would hate to throw them out.....................
