New Mexico announces tomato embargo

By QCS Staff

The New Mexico Environment Department and the New Mexico Department of Health recommended today that no one buy, eat, sell or serve food containing raw red plum, raw red Roma, or raw red round tomatoes grown and harvested in Mexico or Florida unless cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to a press release.

The FDA has added several counties of Florida and states of Mexico to its list of areas that are not linked to the national salmonella outbreak, the release said.
