Rate This

Federal investigators plan to descend on tomato farms, warehouses and packing sheds in Florida and Mexico today to search for the cause of a salmonella outbreak that has now sickened 552 people in 32 states and the District of Columbia.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials said they have figured out the route that some of the tainted tomatoes took before reaching consumers.

"Now we know the path those tomatoes have traveled, we're looking all along those pathways," said David Acheson, a top FDA food safety official.
