Peanut products made by a New Jersey company could be linked to a national salmonella outbreak.
The Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat any peanuts or peanut products sold by Westco Fruit and Nuts, based in Irvington. Officials say the peanuts may have come from the Peanut Corporation of America, which is the source of a widespread salmonella outbreak.
FDA officials say Westco sold the peanuts and used them in mixed nut products between November 2008 and February 2009.
