A California company is recalling pistachios packaged under different
labels over salmonella contamination.
Torn and Glasser, Inc. of Los Angeles said the pistachios, sold in-shell, originally came from the ARO processing plant in Terra Bella, Calif. Aro announced a recall of the nuts last week.
The suspect pistachios were sold in California, Arizona and Hawaii between Feb. 21 and April 29 under the Torn and Glasser, Hilo, Sun Harvest and Sprouts labels.
Salmonella, the number one cause of food poisoning in the United States, can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
Consumers who purchased the nuts should return them to the store for a full refund. To reach the company, call 310-605-4900 or 800-282-6887.
