What is the Problem?

The company has stopped production and distribution of this particular lot of roasted and salted in-shell pistachios as the investigation continues.

Salmonella Food Poisoning

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause severe, life-threatening food poisoning infections. Healthy people who are infected with Salmonella often 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.”
