The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have expanded their search of the current Salmonella serotype Saintpaul outbreak to include food commonly served with tomatoes, such as produce.

Previously, only raw tomatoes had been strongly linked to the outbreak, the CDC stated. However, recent illness clusters across the country have been linked to persons who dined at restaurants, prompting the FDA and CDC to broaden their investigation.

The CDC stated that the number of confirmed Salmonella serotype Saintpaul cases since April has now climbed to 869, with 107 hospitalizations. The outbreak has reached 36 states and the District of Columbia.
