ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis-based produce company is recalling some grape tomatoes that could potentially be contaminated with salmonella.
Front Row Produce says it is recalling 10-ounce pint and 10-pound bulk grape tomatoes supplied by Rio Queen Citrus of Mission, Texas. The recalled produce was distributed to foodservice distributors and retail stores in Missouri and Illinois.
No illnesses have been reported. Front Row Produce says contamination was discovered after random testing by Rio Queen Citrus.
Starting Thursday, shipments of the 10-ounce packages sold in retail stores will include a green lot number sticker on the bottom side of each package with a seven-digit number. Packages that do not contain the green sticker should be considered suspect and under recall.
Consumers with questions can call Front Row Produce at 314-241-4700.
