(WUSA) --  There are more products you should avoid eating after an announcement about a Salmonella outbreak, say Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene officials.

They are telling people to not buy or eat Trader Joe's Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter.  Sunland Inc. makes the peanut butter and has also recalled Trader Joe's Valencia Peanut Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds, Crunchy and Salted and Trader Joe's Almond Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds, Crunchy & Salted.

Sunland has also recalled other products sold at other stores but it's unknown if they are sold in Md.

Health officials say other Trader Joe's brand peanut butter products may be connected to the salmonella outbreak and that consumers should avoid Trader Joe's brand peanut or almond butter for the time being.

A child in Maryland was affected in the outbreak, but was not hospitalized and has recovered. Nationally, there are 29 confirmed cases in 18 states, according to officials.
