DETROIT (WWJ) – A North Carolina company is recalling thousands of cucumbers that could be contaminated with salmonella.

The cucumbers were distributed whole and in bulk in cartons marked Nature’s Delight and sent April 7 to wholesalers in 9 states — but not Michigan.

The states involved in the recall are New York, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming.

The food distributor involved says there have been no reports of illness, and none of its other products are involved.

The crummy cukes in question were harvested on a south Florida farm at the end of March, according to L&M Companies, Inc. Company officials announced the recall after federal inspectors found salmonella last week on cucumbers at a Florida business.
