State health officials have linked an outbreak of campylobacter to eating uncooked peas, grown and produced by Mat-Valley Peas in Palmer.
Campylobacter symptoms develop two to five days after exposure and include abdominal pain, weakness, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Most people recover without treatment.
People experiencing symptoms should drink plenty of fluids and contact their health care provider.
