McDonalds Stops Serving Sliced Tomatoes on Sandwiches

Watch Out For The Tomatoes
McDonald’s says it has ordered all of its restaraunts to stop serving sliced tomatoes in its restaurants over concerns about Salmonella food poisoning associated with uncooked tomatoes. Danya Proud, spokesperson for McDonalds, said that the world’s largest hamburger chain has stopped serving sliced tomatoes altogether in the United States locations as a precaution until the source of the salmonella responsible for the illnesses in at least 16 states is discovered and the problem is dealt with properly.

She went on to say that McDonald’s will continue to serve grape tomatoes in its salads because no problems have been linked to that variety of tomatoes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said at least 23 people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported.
