Big pistachio recall announced
Reuters reported on March 31 that a California grower had issued a nationwide recall on pistachio products, due to a risk of Salmonella poisoning. The FDA says several illnesses have been reported. Kraft Foods was the first retailer to identify contamination in its Back to Nature Trail Mix. It notified the grower/processer Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. Kroger has since recalled its Private Selection shelled pistachios. Some recalled products are sold under the Planters trademark. Over two million pounds of pistachios have been recalled.
