Pistachios Recalled Due to Possible Salmonella Risk

Feb 04, 2016 09:32 AM EST | By Beverly Abad

Braga Organic Farms announced a voluntary recall of their pistachios due to potential contamination with Salmonella.

According to the FDA, the recall was announced after a routine testing revealed the presence of Salmonella in a one-pound bag of raw pistachio kernels bought online.

The affected products include Raw Pistachio Kernels, Trail Mix, and Nut Mix.

In a statement made by the company president Michael Braga, the products purchased from December 28 to January 27 are included in the recall. The products come in a clear or green standup bag, with their date code stamped on the bottom of each bag.

"We were notified yesterday by the FDA that a random sample from the organic raw pistachio kernels contained Salmonella," Braga announced on the company's website. "There have been no illnesses reported. We have been issuing refunds for those products purchased from 12/28/15 to 1/27/on our website, www.buyorganicnuts,com. Please dispose of the remaining product you have."

The company will not be shipping any orders as well until "everything is tested and cleared," Braga added.

Consumers who bought these recalled products are advised not to consume it. They can return it to its place of purchase or simply destroy it. Consumers can also reach the company at 855-661-2101, 8:15 am - 4:30 pm, PST, Monday through Friday.
