Deadly Cukes Recalled

FOOD RECALLSA California company is recalling its cucumbers after a salmonella outbreak that’s sickened 285 people in 27 states and killed a San Diego woman. Fourteen people in Colorado were sickened according to the CDC. Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce of San Diego on Friday voluntarily recalled its “Limited Edition” brand garden cucumbers, which were grown in Mexico. Health officials say the cukes are the likely cause of hundreds of illnesses since July 3rd and the August 17th death of a 99-year-old woman. Half of the people who became ill are under 18 years of age. The CDC says If you aren’t sure if your cucumbers were recalled, ask the place of purchase or your supplier. When in doubt, don’t eat, sell, or serve them and throw them out.
