State Department of Health Services spokeswoman Beth Kaplan says one person was hospitalized but all have recovered. They were sick between April and early June.

Only one had exposure to ground turkey. Kaplan says all are linked because they had the same strain of salmonella that has sickened 73 others in 26 states altogether.

One person has died but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released no details about the death.

The government is still investigating who produced the meat and has not initiated a recall.
