A salmonella scare traced back to a pistachio supplier in California has led to a US wide recall of certain brands of pistachio nuts.
Nuts from Setton Farms’ plant in rural Tulare County, California are currently under investigation. The company is the second largest supplier of pistachio nuts in the United States.
The Georgia Nut Company has recalled Kraft Back to Nature Nantucket Blend trail mix after some samples tested positive for salmonella. The Georgia Nut Company has also recalled its Bulk Deluxe Mixed Nuts and Dry Roasted Shelled Pistachios. Setton Farms has started a separate recall of roasted pistachios, and grocery operator Kroger also has recalled some pistachio products.
The pistachio’s were sold to three dozen wholesalers, who repackaged and resold them. As a result, the FDA said the recall was likely to expand as the pistachios were traced to processed foods like ice cream and cake mixes. We’ll keep on top of the story and offer updates when available.
