The tomatoes have a UPC number of 044419310176. Case lots include MB725GT3, MB725GT8, and MB725GT0. 

No illnesses have been reported. A sample collected at a Minnesota distributor by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture was found to be contaminated.

Customers should throw away the tomatoes or return them to the store.
