The New York City Health Department is warning New Yorkers to throw out their Trader Joe's Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter made with sea salt after an outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to the product. Yesterday, the Center for Diseases Control announced that 29 people in 18 states have been diagnosed with Salmonella. And, according to the NYC DOH, at least one of the cases is in NYC.

Trader Joe's is recalling the product, and authorities are investigating whether other items may be contaminated. The DOH has these recommendations: "New Yorkers who consumed Trader Joe’s Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter made with sea salt and have symptoms described above should see their doctor and ask to be tested for Salmonella," and "New Yorkers should not eat and should discard all Trader Joe’s Valencia Creamy Peanut Butter with sea salt in their home."
