Pistachios Recall Due to Salmonella Contamination
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Setton Farms plant in Terra Bella, California has widened its recall of pistachios to raw nuts and all roasted nuts produced in 2008.
Setton Farms recalled roasted pistachio products late last month after routine tests by Kraft Foods found salmonella strains. Salmonella bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems
The FDA also urges consumers to avoid foods containing pistachios until they can determine whether the products contain pistachios processed at the Setton Farms plant.
