Four Minnesotans catch salmonella in outbreak linked to basil sold at Trader Joe's

State officials are warning Minnesotans against eating a specific brand of packaged basil sold at Trader Joe's that has been linked to a salmonella outbreak, prompting recalls of the product in Minnesota and other states.

So far a third of the 12 people who tested positive nationwide for salmonella are Minnesotans, according to the state Health Department.

The brand in question is Infinite Herbs' 2.5-ounce organic basil, which is packaged in a clamshell-style plastic container and sold at Trader Joe's. Four people in the Twin Cities metro area reported becoming sick between Feb. 15 and March 27 after eating the basil, according to a Health Department news release.
