Utah now has five cases of salmonella involving the same strain that has sickened more than 490 people in 43 states.

Federal investigators have linked the national cases to peanut butter and peanut paste produced at a Georgia processing plant. Dozens of food products have been recalled.

Marilee Poulson, an epidemiologist with the Utah Department of Health, says she doesn't believe anyone in Utah has been hospitalized as part of the outbreak and no one has died.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 40 people have been sickened in neighboring states, including Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado.
