Pistachio Containing Products Contaminated With Salmonella

Category: Food and Nutrition

Salmonella contamination has been discovered in pistachio nuts (from Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella), but this does not only affect products from Setton, but also products from other companies containing Setton’s pistachios. For example, Kraft Foods found one of its trail mix with Salmonella and traced it to the pistachios in the trail mix.

Since a lot of information is still not yet availabl, I highly recommend staying away from any products that contain pistachios for now. Read your labels ("ingredients" section) to check for pistachios.
