Here we go again. A full WEEK after the Food and Drug Administration quietly announced a pistachio recall, the agency is now telling consumers to avoid ALL products containing the nut, reports The Associated Press. (The agency is forced to punish innocent companies because apparently the FDA does not keep a registry or database of where the raw ingredients wind up.)
Like with the ongoing peanut recall, salmonella was found at Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc. The nation’s second-largest pistachio processor is recalling more than 2 million pounds of the nuts, which are used in a variety of consumer products including roasted nuts, chocolate and yogurt-covered candies, ice cream and cake mixes.
As I’ve already learned, it will be impossible to keep up with all the upcoming recalls, so go here over the next few weeks to discover which products are implicated. A searchable database is planned, reports the FDA.
