Salmonella-Tainted Pistachios Recalled By FDA
Posted on Mar 31, 2009
In a recent press release, the FDA has issued a warning to the public to avoid pistachios and other food products that may contain them after they received several complaints that consumers became ill. The FDA's investigation of this possibly new Salmonella outbreak is ongoing.
Since the FDA found that their pistachios may be contaminated, California-based Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc, has recalled approximately 1 million pounds of its products.The FDA has announced that it intends to provide and post a searchable database of the recalled pistachio-linked products on its Web site.
Since Salmonella is a bacterial, rather than viral, process, the CDC recommends that it be treated with antibiotics. Additional information about the Three Fatal Mistakes that Can Destroy Your Food Poisoning Lawsuit is available in the articles section of our website.
