The FDA has warned folks not to eat two brands of pistachios because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. California Prime Produce and Orange County Orchards pistachios are both packaged by Orca Distribution West. The agency said people should throw away any recalled products and avoid contact of the product with their skin. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people.
The recalled snacks are associated with an earlier recall by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc. Orca received and repacked some pistachios from Setton. The newly recalled nuts were sold at stores, airports and hotels nationwide. They come in six-ounce bags with zippers. They UPC number is 8 10826 01116 2, and they have sell-by dates of 7/30/09 and 8/30/09. Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. If it gets into the blood, it can cause arthritis and a heart infection. Orca has not made a public announcement regarding these products, according to the FDA. But the FDA has alerted consumers so that they can take appropriate action
