If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. The company has ceased the distribution of all products containing pistachio kernels. A routine, random sampling program conducted by an FDA third party lab found that the Nature’s Eats Natural Pistachio Kernels product contained Salmonella bacteria.
Throw these products away in a sealed container or double bagged container so other people and animals can’t eat them. Or you can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
