The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says Citterio brand Premium Italian-Style Salame Sticks are linked to a salmonella outbreak.

The snacks were sold at Trader Joe's in eight states.

  • California

  • Kansas
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota

The CDC says 20 people became sick after eating the snacks and three people had to be hospitalized.

People are asked to throw the snacks away and sanitize items and surfaces where the snacks were stored.
