Rate This

Just as the FDA was being taken to task by Congress today, reports of consumers sickened by Salmonella-contaminated tomatoes widened by 61 new cases.

Now up to 23 states have been affected and 228 victims have been sickened. 25 have been hospitalized, while the source of the two-month-old Salmonella outbreak is still a mystery.

A 67-year-old man who died of cancer was also infected with the specific strain of Salmonella at the focus of the investigation. Meanwhile, new cases are being investigated every day.
