McDonald’s, Walmart, Burger King pull contaminated tomatoes
June 9, 2008
Fast food giant McDonald’s has stopped putting sliced tomatoes in its burgers in the US because of the tomato salmonella scare.
Other restaurant and food chains in America, including Wal-Mart supermarkets, and Burger King, have also temporarily withdrawn certain tomatoes.
The US Food and Drug Administration has warned that the outbreak was linked to eating certain raw red plum, red Roma, and red round tomatoes, and products containing these tomatoes.
