The recall is an expansion of a July 2 recall of 58,000 lbs of food after the U.S.D.A. received reports of six people in the Minnesota and Wisconsin area showing signs of salmonellosis directly related to consumption of Barber Foods products.

Two more case-patients have been identified with the illness since the first recall.
