Associated Press reports tonight that recent illnesses connected to an Iowa farmers' market are linked to Mexican foods sold by a common vendor, La Reyna Supermarket & Taqueria of Iowa City. The products were sold at farmers' markets in Linn, Johnson and Dubuque counties and may be contaminated with salmonella. The departments say any guacamole, salsa and uncooked tamales should be thrown away and not eaten. The salmonella investigation was initiated by Linn County Public Health officials and illnesses were traced to products produced by the restaurant in Johnson County.
