A number of E. coli cases in Colorado, Montana, Utah and Washington have been linked to chicken salad from Costco, health officials say.
The chicken salad was purchased in late October or early November. People who have Costco chicken salad with item number 37719 should throw it away, CNN reported.
People who feel ill after eating the chicken salad should call their doctor. Symptoms such as cramps and diarrhea typically appear two to eight days after eating food contaminated with E. coli.
Federal and state health officials are working with Costco to pinpoint the source of the E. coli. contamination, CNN reported.
