Tomato Salmonella

Hollidaysburg, PA: (Nov-27-07) Max Christian Anslinger, an Altoona resident, brought charges against Sheetz Convenience Stores, alleging that it sold salmonella tainted tomatoes. Anslinger was one of more than 400 people sickened by tomatoes sold on sandwiches and other foods at Sheetz stores in Pennsylvania and eight other states in 2004. Sources close to the case stated that the case was pivotal because it was the vehicle for the complicated legal process used to determine where the tomatoes originated. As part of a settlement reached, sources stated that the company reached an out-of-court agreement with Anslinger. Terms of the deal were kept confidential. The plaintiff's legal counsel praised Sheetz for stepping forward quickly to take care of sick customers. Records state that only 10 customer claims remain; eight in Pennsylvania and two in Maryland.

I purchased these tomatoes for a picnic. I made a salad containing these tomatoes. All of my guests including myself got very ill. I broke out in a rash and had diarrhea for 4 days. I went to my physician and was confirmed that the tomatoes was the cause. I'm definitely sure that the tomatoes caused this because I am a vegetarian and only had lettuce and the tomatoes that day.
