According to a CDC announcement, as of February 27, 12 p.m., 370 people have been identified as suffering from food poisoning from Salmonella Tennessee linked with the peanut butter outbreak. Sixty so far are known to have been hospitalized as a result.

The 370 cases come from 42 different states and represent individuals who became ill anywhere from August 1, 2006, through February 16, 2007, with the majority falling ill after December 1, 2006.

Meanwhile, the FDA has concurred with the CDC that Peter Pan and Great Value brands of jarred peanut butter with product codes that start with "2111" are the source of the Salmonella. The FDA also has said that this is an "ongoing" outbreak because the peanut butter is still in stores and consumers' homes.
