OTERO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – An Otero county man is among those sickened in a salmonella outbreak possibly linked to a powdered supplement.

The company Garden of Life has recalled its raw meal organic shake and meal products after learning 11 people in 9 states have been sickened. That includes a 75-year-old New Mexico man.

The powdered supplements come in a variety of flavors and are available at nutrition stores and food co-ops, as well as online.

The New Mexico Department of Health is encouraging anyone who uses these supplements to report any sickness to them.
