Lakewood, Colo. (AP) The Food and Drug Administration says Colorado-grown tomatoes are not associated with a salmonella outbreak that has sickened 167 people in 17 states since April.

So far two people in Colorado have been sickened.

But state commissioner of agriculture John Stulp says tomatoes harvested in Colorado have been cleared of any connection with the outbreak.

The FDA recommends staying away from Raw Red Roma, Red Plum and Red Round tomatoes unless they are from states like Colorado that have been ruled safe.

Cherry tomatoes, Grape tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes and tomatoes with the vine still attached are not believed to be connected to the outbreak.
