FDA Update on Pistachios
Posted Wednesday, April 8, 2009

We would like to share an item with everyone out there concerned about the ongoing Pistachio recalls. You can use or upload this widget from the official FDA page which lists all recalled Pistachio products, as well as providing a search function so you can check specific any item's status.†

From the FDA site:

The FDA and the California Department of Public Health continue to investigate Salmonella contamination in pistachios and pistachio products. Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc., Terra Bella, Calif., is voluntarily expanding its recall of roasted pistachios to include all lots of roasted in-shell pistachios and roasted shelled pistachios that were produced from nuts harvested in 2008. The firm is also recalling those raw shelled pistachios from the 2008 crop that are not subsequently roasted prior to retail sale. The pistachios may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Initially, the firmís recall was limited to certain lots of roasted pistachios. Information from the joint FDA and California Department of Public Health inspection indicates the presence of Salmonella in critical areas of the facility and the potential for cross-contamination between raw and roasted products. After this information was shared with Setton, the firm decided to expand its recall.

While the FDA has done an excellent job providing information like this to the public, it is important to note that to date there have been exactly Zero confirmed illnesses associated with the Setton pistachios.
