Salmonella Recall for Nature’s Eats Pistachios

Texas Star Nut and Food Co. Inc.  has issued a recall for Nature’s Eats natural pistachio kernels, because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. Consumers who have purchased these nuts should not eat them as Salmonella can cause serious illness.

The recalled product was sold in 8 oz. cello bags with the lot code 40262001 and the “best by” date “1/4/2017.” It was sold at retail locations in Texas and Louisiana from January 22, 2016 to February 3, 2016. The company has ceased the distribution of this specific lot of natural pistachio kernels.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include 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.

The problem was discovered through routine random testing by a third party. At the time of the recall, no illnesses had been reported, according to the company.
