The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a warning about a salmonella outbreak it believes to be from a line of nut butter spreads from Oregon.
JEM Raw Chocolate's nut butter spreads of Bend, Oregon, have been linked to illnesses in people from nine states, including California, Hawaii and New Jersey.
The CDC said in its statement, "Any remaining nut butter spread should be thrown away. Even if some of the nut butter spread has been eaten and no one has gotten sick, the rest of it should be thrown away."
