Potentially salmonella-tainted cucumbers recalled

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A dangerous batch of cucumbers has poisoned hundreds and killed one, and now they’ve been recalled.

Officials say Andrew and WIlliamson Fresh Produce cucumbers may be tainted with salmonella. On Friday, the company voluntarily recalled its “Limited Edition” brand cucumbers.

Company officials are working to learn if the outbreak — that to date has sickened about 300 —  is from its cucumbers.

The potentially tainted cucumbers has already led to at least one lawsuit, according to the associated press.
