Tomato Salmonella Risk too High for McDonald’s

If you’re hankering for a Quarter Pounder or a Big Mac, don’t expect to find a tomato as part of your fast food indulgence. McDonald’s and other restaurants have decided to no longer offer sliced tomatoes after fresh tomatoes have been linked to salmonella. Nearly 150 cases of a type of salmonella have been reported around the country since April, including at least 23 hospitalizations, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The source of the tomatoes has yet to be determined.
