Six L's of Immokalee, Florida, is voluntarily recalling a single lot of grape tomatoes, which were distributed to 10 states including California and to Canada and reached consumers through retail stores and restaurant distribution.
Additionally, the lot was supplied to Taylor Farms Pacific, Inc. of Tracy, California, and was used in 29 packaged salads made by Taylor Farms for Albertsons, Raley's, Safeway, Savemart, Sam's Club, & Walmart. Those products are also being voluntarily recalled as a precautionary measure. No illnesses have been reported. For more details, turn the page.
