The Minnesota Department of Health says a person from Minnesota has been infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella linked to Trader Joe's peanut butter.

KSTP-TV says an adult from the Twin Cities metro area reported eating the peanut butter in July before being hospitalized for Salmonella and has since recovered.

A total of 30 people in 19 states have been infected. Four people have been hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported.

Sunland Inc., the company that makes peanut butter for Trader Joe's, has now recalled 76 peanut, almond and cashew products because of possible contamination with salmonella, USA Today reports. The butters, spreads and other products are sold under many brand names, including Archer's and Earth Balance. A multi-state outbreak of illness from salmonella has been tied to Trader Joe's Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter.

Trader Joe's has locations in 30 states, including Minnesota. The company has a message to customers on its website.
