LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The number of people in a Salmonella outbreak sickened by tainted cucumbers, has now climbed to 671.

About 130 of those have been hospitalized and three have died.

Half of all who have fallen ill are under the age of 18.

But health officials say all the tainted cucumbers have been pulled from store shelves.

In case you have some cucumbers stores, investigators have identified the source of the bad cucumbers as Fat Boy cucumbers from Baja, Mexico.
