Health officials say that five cases of salmonella in Colorado may be linked to a snack food that has been recalled nationwide.

Robert's American Gourmet in Sea Cliff, N.Y., recalled all lots and sizes of the product after reports of 51 cases of salmonella poisoning in 17 states that may be associated with the product.

Dan Rifkin of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment did not offer any specifics about the Colorado cases, and a department spokeswoman did not immediately return a call.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
