Denver (AP) A Colorado resident has a confirmed case of salmonella saintpaul, which is linked to a nationwide Food and Drug Administration recall of certain raw, red tomatoes.

The head of the consumer protection division at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Barbara Hruska, says the resident lives in Weld County. But she did not know which Northern Colorado city or town the individual was from, or when the person came down with the illness.

The recall involves red, raw tomatoes, including Plum, Roma and Round. The source of the tomatoes responsible for illnesses in at least 16 states since mid-April has not been pinpointed.

Hruska says symptoms of salmonella saintpaul include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
