Yum Brands Resupplying Tomatoes At Restaurants

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Tomatoes are coming back on the menus at
Yum Brands' restaurants.

The Louisville-based fast-food company says it's starting to
resupply its restaurants with tomatoes from areas that have been
cleared of salmonella risk by federal health officials.

Yum is the parent company of Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, A&W and
Long John Silver's restaurants.

The company had stopped serving tomatoes earlier this month amid
a salmonella outbreak linked to tainted tomatoes, though there was
no connection to Yum's restaurants and the illnesses.

Federal officials the outbreak sickened 277 people across the
country.

Public health officials say a Louisville woman contracted the
illness last month but has since recovered.
