BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals says three cases of salmonella in Louisiana may be part of the outbreak that sickened 285 people in 27 states, killing a 99-year-old California woman.

A news release says the Louisiana cases were in the Baton Rouge area, the northeast and the northwest.

Federal authorities say there were one or two cases in Mississippi, 60 in Arizona and 51 in California.

Andrew & Williamson Fresh Produce of San Diego on Friday recalled "Limited Edition" brand cucumbers.

Louisiana's health department received notification Friday night and began calling national companies with Louisiana outlets that might have sold or used the cucumbers. The agency says Red Lobster restaurants in Louisiana disposed of them Friday, and Whole Foods did so Saturday morning.
