If you have any cucumbers in your refrigerator right now it's recommended you call the store where you purchased them and make sure they're safe to eat.

If they're part of the recall do not eat them, throw them out right away, and wash any surfaces the cucumbers may have touched.

"A salmonella outbreak linked to contaminated cucumbers shipped to multiple states has left more than 160 people sickened across the country, including dozens across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, according to health officials," says NBC News Philadelphia.

It was just earlier in the week when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recalled cucumbers sent to several states last month, specifically May 17-21, including New Jersey.

The recalled cucumbers are from the company, Fresh Start Produce, based out of Florida and sold here in the Garden State.

NBC News Philadelphia reports, "The recalled cucumbers are dark green, approximately 1.5 - 2.0 inches in diameter, and 5-9 inches long," according to the FDA.
