Pistachios recalled over Salmonella risk

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:14 a.m. HST, Jul 15, 2013

Potential Salmonella contamination has prompted company officials to recall batches of Hilo Products pistachios.

Los Angeles-based Tom and Glasser, Inc. distributed the bags of nuts to Hawaii, California and Arizona. The suspect Hilo Products Roasted & Salted Natural Pistachios are part of lot code 0923, which can be found on the back corner next to the seal.

Salmonella bacteria can cause severe, sometimes fatal infections, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled nuts are advised not to eat them and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. An information line is available at (800) 282-6887 between 4 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to answer consumer questions.

WoW. One of my favorites. Live on the mainland and purchase my pistachios at Costco. Wonder if their Kirkland brand is affected.

Your fine, the only nuts you need to worry about are the ones from Hilo. I also enjoy the Kirkland Nuts from Costco.

The problem is when the distributor sends it all over, so need to keep watching to see if another other retail sources got the same batch of nuts that were contaminated. Usually it's days later that other sources pop up that were affected.
