PA Grocery Stores Pull Tomatoes From Shelves

Two supermarket chains in Pennsylvania have removed several kinds of tomatoes from their shelves after a salmonella outbreak in several other states.

Giant Food Stores says it removed organic and Roma tomatoes grown in areas being investigated for possible connection to the outbreak. The tomatoes are also being removed from Martin's Food Markets, also owned by Giant.

The grocers say the tomatoes were removed as a precaution. There have been no reports of anyone in Pennsylvania getting sick.

Investigators with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are trying to determine the exact cause of the outbreak. In all, the outbreak is affecting 16 states.
