PHOENIX (AP) — Health officials say 66 cases of salmonella linked to garden-variety cucumbers grown outside the U.S. have been reported in six Arizona counties.
They say Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce of San Diego has voluntarily recalled all cucumbers sold under the Limited Edition label from Aug. 1 through Sept. 3 because they may be contaminated with salmonella.
Arizona's cases are part of a larger multi-state investigation of 285 cases in 27 states.
In Arizona, about 75 percent of the cases are children ages 17 and under.
Some people have been hospitalized, but there haven't been any reported deaths.
Department of Health Services officials say of Arizona's 66 cases, 49 are in Maricopa County, 10 in Pima County, one in Apache County and two cases each in Coconino, Pinal and Yuma counties.
