BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) The Department of Public Health is recommending that Trader Joe's shoppers toss out a popular food item.
Health officials released a warning on Friday night about "Trader Joe's Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter made with Sea Salt."
Officials believe the peanut butter may be related to a recent salmonella outbreak. A total of 29 cases have been reported since June 11. Three of those cases occurred in Massachusetts.
Anyone who became sick after consuming that brand of peanut butter is told to contact their physician.
Several health agencies including the Center for Disease Control and the FDA are investigating the outbreak.
