Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Dennis Wolff today announced that the state Department of Agriculture has confirmed a positive test for salmonella in Roma tomatoes distributed by Coronet Foods of West Virginia.
The laboratory division of the Bureau of Food Safety confirmed a unopened bag of Roma tomatoes taken from a Sheetz store in Greencastle tested positive for salmonella according to PRNewswire. The tomatoes were distributed by Coronet Foods of West Virginia. Bureau of Food Safety will continue testing other samples collected to help ensure that the outbreak is not linked to other sources.
Sheetz voluntarily pulled all products in question immediately upon notification of a potential problem. The Department of Health will now test the sample to type the strain.
