Recall: Pistachios from Braga Farms

Braga Organic Farms is recalling pistachios that were sold in both retail and online stores due to potential contamination with Salmonella.

Braga Organic Farms announces the voluntary recall of pistachios due to potential contamination with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, diabetics, and others with weakened immune systems.
Pistachio Recall
Healthy persons infected with Salmonella can 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.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The recalled nuts were distributed in retail stores in California, Oregon and Washington, and it was distributed through online sales nationwide.

The product comes in a clear or green standup bag, with the date code stamped on the bottom of the bag.

The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the FDA revealed the presence of Salmonella in a one-pound package of raw pistachio kernels purchased online.
