St. Paul, MN (KROC-AM News) - The State Department of Health says a recent outbreak of salmonella illness linked to Chipotle restaurants in Minnesota was caused by tainted tomatoes.

Investigators are now working to trace the tomatoes back to the farm of origin. The most recent tally shows 64 cases involving 22 Chipotle restaurant locations have been reported to the health department since late August. The Chipotle restaurant along South Broadway in Rochester is among those affected, but the vast majority of the locations are in the Twin Cities.

State Health officials stress there is no longer a risk of becoming infected from this particular product at Chipotle, which has switched suppliers for its tomatoes and has removed the implicated product from its stores.
