Pistachios recalled following salmonella outbreak
OLYMPIA, Wash. — Pistachios sold under the brands of Wonderful, Paramount Farms and Trader Joe’s are being recalled nationwide because they may be contaminated with salmonella.
Health officials in nine states are investigating 11 cases of salmonella linked to pistachios from Wonderful Pistachios of Lost Hills, California. The nuts are sold nationwide and in Canada.
The recalled pistachios can be identified by a lot code number on the lower back or bottom panel of the package. A list of those numbers is available on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Wonderful Pistachios says on its website that it takes food safety seriously and is working with health officials to find the source of the problem.
The company asks people to return the nuts where they bought them for a refund.
