The Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that recalling e coli after there was a warning about rotisserie chicken salad contaminated with E. coli has spread to a dozen states, including products sold at grocery chains and retail outlets.

The main culprit seems to be celery in Costco's chicken salad. It had been produced by California-based Taylor Farms Pacific, according to Fox News.

The number of food products recalled were expanded on Tuesday. They now include 155,000 items  including salad kits, vegetable trays and others sold at stores and retail outlets such as Walmart, Sams Club, Albertsons, 7-Eleven, Target and Safeway.

Starbucks too is affected by the recall. It has purged over 45,000 holiday turkey sandwiches in California, Oregon and Nevada, it explains. Stores in Georgia, Arkansas, Nebraska and Hawaii are also affected after the initial spread in the western areas.

So far, 19 people became ill after they ate Costco's chicken salad, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
