Well there goes the unshelled ones I have from the grocery. Not going to take a chance and wait to see if they will be recalled. From what happened with the PCA and all the peanut product - nah, no need to wait and see. Throwing it out is safer. So will that mean more nuts will come up showing salmonella along with regular plain peanuts and now the pistachio's? Should we not eat any type of nuts at all?

Same precautions apply to almonds.

It's got to be the way agribusiness is processing, storing, and transporting nut products,
don't you think?

Edited to add April 4, 2009:

http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-04-01-nuts-salmonella-food-safety_N.htm

A salmonella outbreak in 2004 linked to raw almonds made dozens sick and resulted in the recall of 13 million pounds of almonds. Because of that, the Department of Agriculture has mandated that all almonds be pasteurized to kill salmonella.

If oil goes rancid wonder if the same would apply to peanuts of any kind. Maybe they need to be kept refrigerated and sold in the same section as the watermelon, fresh cut pineapple, etc. And another question would be - just exactly how long have these peanuts been sitting around before being shipped to store shelves? How old are they? How fresh are they? Are they stored in a hot, humid environment that would cause the salmonella to occur let alone be rancid too?

Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. Announces Nationwide Recall of Pistachios

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Terra Bella, CA (March 30, 2009) – Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. announced today that it is voluntarily recalling from nationwide distribution specific lots of bulk roasted shelled pistachios and 2,000 lbs., 1,700 lbs., 1,800 lbs. and 1,000 lbs. tote bags of roasted inshell pistachios sold to wholesale customers due to potential contamination with the Salmonella organism.

This voluntary recall affects certain bulk roasted inshell and roasted shelled pistachios shipped on or after September 1, 2008. The bulk product was distributed throughout the United States. The Company is voluntarily taking this precautionary measure after learning that a small amount of roasted shelled pistachios processed by Setton Pistachio and received by a commercial customer in late 2008 recently tested positive for Salmonella. This voluntary recall is not in any way related to the recent recalls associated with peanuts or peanut butter.

The Company is asking those firms who received bulk product and have further processed, repackaged, or distributed the affected products to recall those products and contact FDA.

In addition, the company is voluntarily recalling the following retail product: Setton Farms brand roasted salted shelled pistachios in 9 oz. film bags, UPC Code: 034325020252 with a "Best Before" date between 01/06/10 and 01/19/10. This product was distributed in the following states: SC, GA, FL, NC, VA, TN, KY.

"By Friday, grocery operator Kroger Co. recalled one of its lines of bagged pistachios because of possible salmonella contamination, saying the California plant also supplied its nuts. Those nuts were sold in 31 states."

http://www.wsbtv.com/news/19055836/detail.html#-

I think that'd be a good bet as to why I checked into the bathroom for an extended stay the other week:(  No peanuts? Try pistachios! Right.

Why can't they recall before you eat the products & toss the bags/containers?

Notice how it's always our filthy and out of date big ag industrialized food system that is causing all the problems and not the smaller quality farms and producers.

menusux, this is going to huge again. Do you want help posting recall notices?

Steve, how does the consumer in the retail grocery store tell the difference as the
big ag producers gobble up organic food brands if they're not buying local from the
farm?

In the ground nuts like peanuts are supposed to be dangerous for aflatoxins. Where
else could all the salmonella be coming from except for the processing, storage, and
transportation since it's now affecting both tree nuts and ground grown nuts? Rather than
make big ag clean up its act, does anyone else suspect that it's part of a move to
get foods irradiated as a means of killing salmonella so filthy facilities, processing, and
transport don't have to be? Nuts today, meats and vegetables tomorrow type thing?

I hope and pray that is not so, but that is exactly what I suspect, too.

For all the good it does:

http://www.fda.gov/pistachios/


http://www.fda.gov/pistachios/consumer_advice.html

What Is FDA Advising Consumers Regarding Pistachios and Pistachio Products
FDA is advising consumers not to eat any brand of shelled or unshelled pistachios, or any food products containing pistachios, such as baked goods, trail mix, and other snack foods, until FDA determines which pistachios and pistachio products are affected by the recall being conducted by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. ("Setton"), also called Setton Farms.  The FDA consumer alert is available at this link:
   

http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2009/NEW01982.html  

How Can Consumers Get Information About What Products are Under Recall?
Consumers can obtain the latest information about FDA advice on pistachios and about what products are under recall from the FDA website.  The agency has established a special webpage to provide the latest information, including a searchable database of products under recall.  The special webpage is available by clickable icon on the opening page of the FDA website, and at this direct link:
 
http://www.fda.gov/pistachios/
In addition, consumers can contact the manufacturers of products directly and ask if their products contain Setton pistachios.

What Should Consumers Do With Pistachios and Pistachio Products They Have on Hand? 
Consumers should store pistachios and pistachio products in their homes, away from children, until it can be determined
whether the products are affected by the recall. Products that are not recalled do not need to be thrown away.

Why is FDA Advising Consumers Not to Eat Any Pistachios or Pistachio Products?
FDA is advising consumers not to eat any brands of pistachios or pistachio products because at this stage of the investigation FDA does not know which foods contain the recalled pistachios.  Pistachios from Setton  likely have been used as ingredients in a variety of foods, including both shelled and in-shell pistachios packaged under different brand names.  Until the distribution chain of the recalled pistachios is identified, consumers should avoid all brands of pistachios and food made with pistachios.


Lots of luck, FDA, in tracking down the untraceable. {Irish temper rant and food consumer outrage}
