Recall Alert: Cucumbers Recalled Amid Salmonella Outbreak

This article originally appeared on All You By Gillian Nigro

California distributor Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce is recalling cucumbers after they were linked to a multi-state salmonella outbreak, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The recall covers cucumbers grown in northern Mexico and sold under the company’s “Limited Edition” label from Aug. 1 through Sept. 3. The outbreak, which began in early July, has so far killed a 99-year-old San Diego woman and sickened at least 285 others. More than half of those infected have been under the age of 18.

The cucumbers were distributed to 22 states, 18 of which have reported infections: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas and Utah. The remaining four states—Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi and New Jersey—have not reported infections, while nine other states that didn’t receive shipments—Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming—have reported infections.

The above photo, released by the CDC, shows the type of cucumber that’s been recalled. Supermarkets and other retail locations would unpack these boxes and sell them in bulk displays, however, making identifying the brand of cucumber very tricky.

The CDC said the affected cucumbers are often referred to as “slicers” or “American” cucumbers, and are typically dark green in color and seven to 10 inches in length. You can ask your supermarket if your cucumbers are included in the recall, but if you’re still in doubt, your best bet would be to just throw them out. No dinner salad is worth your physical health.
