Public Health Wales says it is working with the Food Standards Agency and environmental health officers from Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire to investigate the outbreak.
We know that the majority of cases have eaten laverbread produced by Penclawdd. The company has cooperated fully with our investigations and has chosen to voluntarily withdraw the product from sale as a precaution.
Laverbread is generally a safe product to eat, and it remains unclear whether it is indeed the source of this outbreak.
However, given that we cannot rule out laverbread at present, it is very important that, to avoid the risk of illness, anyone with this product at home does not eat it.

Anyone who is concerned about their health should contact their GP or call NHS Direct 0845 4647.
Public Health Wales is investigating an outbreak of salmonella in the Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire areas.
A total of 12 adults have been effected by the outbreak, 10 of whom had reported eating laverbread in the days before they became unwell. Three people were hospitalised, but have since been discharged.
Local company Penclawdd Shellfish Processing Ltd has voluntarily withdrawn its laverbread from sale.
Public Health Wales is recommending that anyone who has any laverbread at home that may have been produced by Penclawdd throws it away and does not eat it.
Residents of a village in the Swansea Valley hit by landslides will attend a public meeting this evening over fears they could be hit again. Ystalyfera was hit at the end of 2012 and people were evacuated from their homes.
A stability report commissioned by Neath Port Talbot County Council suggests the area remains at risk and properties in the villages of Pant Teg and Godre'r Graig are now in a high risk category landslide area.
Many residents fear their properties are now worthless if they are unable to sell them.
Residents are now concerned over coal mining plans for the area and fear if given the go ahead it could cause a major landslide in view of the volatile conditions. Residents say they fear another tragedy like Aberfan.
Two lanes are blocked and there's very slow traffic after three accidents on the M4 Westbound between J41 A48 / B4286 (Baglan/Pentyla) and J42 A48 (Earlswood Roundabout/Fabian Way).There's congestion to J37 A4229 (Pyle).
There have been measles cases reported at two primary schools, a further education college, and a nursery - in addition to cases at Cwmtawe School in Pontardawe.
We now have cases not only in Cwmtawe School but also in two primary schools, a further education college and a nursery – and in all of these places there are unvaccinated children and young people who could easily catch and spread measles.
Parents who have decided not to vaccinate their children are not only risking their children’s health, but are putting other children at risk, children either too young to be vaccinated or with medical conditions that prevent them from being vaccinated.
We are very frustrated to see more cases of measles in the area so soon after the large outbreak earlier this year and we are very keen for this to be stopped before it can get any bigger and we return to a position where children are admitted to hospital or die or are damaged by the disease.
The only way to achieve that is through vaccination and I urge parents whose children have not received two doses of MMR to ensure that they speak to their GP immediately to arrange this quick, safe and effective vaccine.
– Dr Jörg Hoffmann, Consultant in Communicable Disease Control for Public Health Wales
Public Health Wales says it wants to remind parents that children need two doses of MMR for the maximum 99 per cent protection against measles.
The virus is very contagious, can cause serious complications and even be fatal.
The symptoms of measles include: fever, fatigue, runny nose, conjunctivitis, a distinctive red rash.
Public Health Wales is urging anyone who thinks they or their children has the symptoms should contact their GP or NHS Direct Wales on 0845 46 47.
