Recall: Wonderful Pistachios Due to Possible Health Risk

Wonderful Pistachios is recalling certain lots, flavors and sizes of pistachios because there is a risk of contamination from Salmonella, which can cause more serious infections among people with diabetes.

Wonderful Pistachios announced that it is voluntarily recalling a limited number of flavors and sizes of in-shell and shelled pistachios due to a risk of Salmonella contamination.
Wonderful Pistachios Recalled due to Salmonella
Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, people with diabetes, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention some of our products may be linked to an outbreak of Salmonellosis. The products, which were distributed through several retailers nationwide and Canada, can be identified by a 13-digit lot code number that can be found on the lower back or bottom panel of the package.

The specific products and lot codes are:
