(WXYZ) — A massive onion recall that has been linked to more than 600 salmonella cases in 43 states has been expanded to include Trader Joe's, Walmart and more.

On Monday, Progressive Produce voluntarily recalled red and yellow onions due to the recall from Thomson International, which supplied affected onions to Progressive Produce.

The recalled products were sold on the West Coast, at Trader Joe’s (conventional red onions sold only in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah stores) and Ralph’s (conventional yellow onions sold only in California stores). The onions are sold loose in bulk bins. The red onions have a PLU sticker with the brand name Pacific Gold. No other Progressive Produce onions or other products are impacted by this recall.
