NY Health Department Confirms State’s Second Salmonella Case


tomatoes.jpgThe State Department of Health recently reported New York’s second case of salmonella poisoning which may be related to the outbreak involving tomatoes.

The DOH says the person lives in Orange County.

Earlier this week, the department confirmed that a city resident fell victim to the salmonella outbreak.

Both victims recovered without hospitalization.

More than 200 people in 23 states have become ill from eating tainted tomatoes and at least one person has died.

The FDA says uncooked plum, roma and round tomatoes grown in a number of states could be contaminated.

But tomatoes that are still on the vine are okay to eat, as well as cherry and grape tomatoes.
