Braga Organic Farms of Madera is voluntarily recalling select packages of pistachios because of the potential for salmonella.
A routine test by the Food and Drug Administration found the presence of salmonella in a one-pound package of raw pistachio kernels that were bought online.
FDA officials said that to date no illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall.
The recalled nuts were sold in retail stores in California, Oregon and Washington and through online sales nationwide.
The recalled nuts are in clear or green packages, with the date code stamped on the bottom of the bag.
A list of affected products and code dates can be found on the FDA’s website, www.fda.gov under the tab, Recalls & Alerts. The products include raw pistachio kernels, trail mix and nut mix.
Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with salmonella can experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled product should not eat it. They should destroy it or return it to the store where it was purchased. Consumers with questions should call (855) 661-2101, 8:15 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., PST, Monday through Friday.
