Not cool as a cucumber.

It's not uncommon to have an illness outbreak linked to meats.

I've yet to hear of people getting sick from trying to better their health with cucumbers. It's just counter productive.

But apparently six separate cases of salmonella have been linked to the pre-pickle.

Yakima county led the way with 2 cases. The same strain of salmonella was found in 3 count packages of cucumbers.

If you bought English cucumbers from Costco between August and September, the Department of Health says you should toss 'em.
