Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce has expanded a recall of organic grape tomatoes from Mexico sold under Fresh & Easy and Limited Edition brands, because of a positive test for salmonella.

Originally limited to 18 states and Canada, the recall now includes the entire U.S. Andrew & Williamson officials expanded the geographic area after learning that their distributors resold product to others outside the 18 states. There is still only one lot involved and Canada remains part of the recall, as originally reported.

Andrew & Williamson, San Diego, issued the recall Sept. 28 after the U.S. Department of Agriculture received a positive salmonella result from a random sample from one clamshell taken in at a distributor Michigan.

No illnesses have been reported, according to the FDA recall notice.
