Barcelona Nut Company Recalls Roasted and Salted in Shell Pistachios due to Salmonella

The FDA announced that Barcelona Nut Company of Baltimore, Maryland recalled 239 cases of roasted and salted in-shell pistachios because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The roasted and salted in-shell pistachios were distributed in Washington D.C., Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, California, Virginia, Ohio, New Jersey, and Georgia through retail stores and direct delivery. No illnesses have been reported to date. Barcelona Nut Company's processor and supplier, ARO, voluntarily initiated the recall after a separate and unaffiliated manufacturer performed a routine test which revealed salmonella. Since Barcelona Nut Company received product from the same lot, it was necessary to take precautions. Barcelona Nut Company has ceased the production and distribution of this particular lot of roasted and salted in shell pistachios as the FDA and the companies involved continue their investigation. @ https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm625001.htm" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm625001.htm
