RICHMOND, Va. -- Two Virginia residents -- one of whom was from Northern Virginia -- had salmonella when they died, but it's not clear whether the illness is what killed them.

Virginia state health authorities tell WTOP the deaths have not yet been linked to the salmonella outbreak that's being associated with peanut butter.

In Virginia, 17 cases of salmonella have been reported. Eight of those are in Northern Virginia.

The state is investigating whether the cases are linked to the nationwide outbreak. The eight Northern Virginia cases were the same type of salmonella as those in the nationwide outbreak.

The state won't know whether they are in fact related for a few more days.
