The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced a recall on cucumbers.
The CDC says 73 cases of Salmonella Saintpaul have been reported in 8 states including Maryland and Virginia.
The cukes were supplied by a greenhouse in Mexico and distributed by a company in Arizona; CDC officials say cucumber shipments from these producers will be denied by United States customs until it can be proven that they are free from salmonella.
The CDS says it believes all of the infected cucumbers have been pulled from stores shelves. In the meantime though, if you live in Maryland or on Virginia’s Eastern Shore and you recently purchased cucumbers, just throw them out.
