Vegetarians are usually considered fairly safe from Salmonella poisoning. Usually found in chicken and poultry, there has been a recent crop of salmonella food poisoning incidents linked to contaminated tempeh imported from Indonesia.
Tempeh is a meat substitute that is made from fermented soybeans. It is usually pasturized and cooked before consumption. However, the batch from the Indonesian company started with tainted culture and did not pasteurize their product. As a result, they have voluntarily recalled their product.
