WASHINGTON, DC - Due to a recent outbreak of salmonella contamination, tomatoes are being recalled nationwide. This makes it the latest in a long string of food products that have taken center stage as temporarily or permanently unsafe for various reasons.

Past participants include eggs, beef, spinach, saccharin, broccoli, cranberries, apples, beef, Olestra, chicken, milk, chili, peanut butter, green onions, orange juice, bean sprouts, strawberries, ice cream, vichyssoise and pet food, among others.
