DETROIT (AP) – Trader Joe’s is recalling peanut butter that’s been linked to 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states.

Federal health officials say the grocery store’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter is the likely source of the outbreak.

More than two-thirds of those who became ill were children under the age of 18.

The government did not release which states had reported illnesses, but several states have issued warnings to residents not to eat the peanut butter. According to the individual states’ health departments, three cases were in Massachusetts, one was in Rhode Island and one was in North Carolina.

No deaths have been reported.

Customers with questions may contact Trader Joe’s Customer Relations at (626) 599-3817.
