A salmonella outbreak has infected 30 people, and the likely source is alfalfa sprouts from Denver, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

More than half of those infected are living in Colorado. The “likely source” of the outbreak, according to CDC, is a Denver-based company named Sprouts Extraordinaire.

People got sick from May 21 to July 20; five have been hospitalized, and no one has died. Sprouts Extraordinaire has issued a recall of its products.

Most people infected with salmonella develop the following signs and symptoms 12-72 hours:

  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Abdominal cramps
