You can now get tomato again with that burger at Wendy's.
The same is true for items at Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, A&W, and Long John Silver. The companies behind those restaurant chains have begun restocking tomatoes after the government identified crops that are not linked to the salmonella scare. None of the 277 salmonella cases reported is connected with any of the restaurants.
Burger King, which also briefly stopped using tomatoes, began restocking its restaurants with them last week. However, one restaurant is still holding off on using tomatoes. McDonald's is waiting until it can get enough safe tomatoes for its entire chain.
