A Norwalk, Iowa fruit and vegetable distributor is recalling several lots of cherry tomatoes after the grower notified the distributor that Salmonella was found in random sample testing by the Food and Drug Administration.

Capital City Fruit Inc. says the recalled cherry tomatoes from Rio Queen Citrus are packaged in one-pint containers as Capital Brand Clamshell Cherry Tomatoes. They were shipped to retail stores from November 14th to November 18th and sold in stores in Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

No illnesses have been reported. Capital City Fruit on Wednesday says it asked retailers to remove the product from store shelves.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
