For weeks now, we've been told to hold the tomatoes, while the CDC and FDA scrambled to find the origin of a massive salmonella outbreak.
But now officials saying it may not be tomatoes making people sick after all.
According to the CDC, investigators are still focusing on raw tomatoes, but are now looking at other produce and processing plants, as well. They also say they still cannot be certain the source of the salmonella has been removed from store shelves.
Around 810 Americans have now been sickened, some as recently as mid June.
According to officials, there is no indication the outbreak is slowing.
