Pistachios Recalled Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Tuesday announced a pistachio recall associated with Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. The firm announced it is voluntarily recalling from nationwide distribution specific lots of bulk roasted shelled pistachios and 2,000-, 1,700-, 1,800- and 1,000-pound tote bags of roasted in-shell pistachios sold to wholesale customers due to potential contamination with Salmonella. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises that, because the pistachios were used as ingredients in a variety of foods, it is likely this recall will impact many products. FDA is working closely with the pistachio industry and recommends that consumers avoid eating pistachio products until further information is available about the scope of affected products. This recall is not related to the recent recalls associated with peanuts or peanut butter.
