Cucumbers recalled for salmonella risk

- Cucumbers imported from Mexico and produced by a company that distributes product to Whole Foods and other area stores have been recalled for possible salmonella contamination, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) said.

The distributer, Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce of San Diego, issued a voluntary recall of the "Limited Edition" brand pole grown cucumbers. 

The labeling on the cases indicates the product was grown and packed by Rancho Don Juanito in Mexico. The cucumbers were distributed between August 1 and September 3, 2015. 

CDPH is currently aware of 285 individuals in 27 states infected with Salmonella serotype Poona, with 51 of these case-patients being reported from 17 California counties, including one death. 

Domestically grown cucumbers were not believed to be involved in the outbreak, CDPH said.
