Pistachio Recall

The Star Tribune reported that Federal officials found traces of salmonella poisoning in a pistachio processing plant in California on Monday. The outbreak led to the recall of more than 2 million pounds of nuts, and the company expanded the recall to include all raw and roasted pistachios from its 2008 crop. Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. is where the outbreak was found, and is the nation’s second largest pistachio plant and sells its products to large companies like Kraft. No illnesses have been reported yet from consumers eating the bad pistachios. The New York Times reports that this is part of the new Obama Administration’s policy that food makers with sloppy manufacturing processes would not be tolerated.
