US fresh produce distributor Custom Produce is recalling all cucumbers sold in the US under the Fat Boy label, on fears they may be contaminated with salmonella.
The voluntary recall is part of a wider recall of Andrew & Williamson's cucumbers announced on 4 September.
Last Wednesday (9 September), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed a second fatality from the outbreak strain of salmonella poona linked to cucumbers.
To date 341 illnesses have been confirmed in as many as 30 states.
Investigations have identified imported cucumbers from Mexico and distributed by Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce as a likely source of the infections. Arizona, California, Montana, and Nevada isolated salmonella from samples of cucumbers distributed by Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce and on 4 September, the company voluntarily recalled all cucumbers sold under the Limited Edition brand between 1 August and 3 September because they may be contaminated with salmonella.
All Fat Boy cucumbers with a label starting 1 August were recalled as of last Friday (11 September). Unlabeled cucumbers packed into a black reusable plastic container (RPC) and were sold in Nevada, as of 1 August 2015 are also covered by this recall.
Fat Boy cucumbers were produced in Baja California and distributed in the states of California, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Texas. Custom Produce said it had contacted all customers who may have received this product.
