Going Nuts!

FDA: Avoid Foods Containing Pistachios

  • Federal food safety officials warned Monday that consumers should stop eating all foods containing pistachios while they figure out the source of a possible salmonella contamination.

  • Two people called the FDA complaining of gastrointestinal illness that could be associated with the nuts, but the link hasn't been confirmed, Acheson said. Still, the plant decided to shut down late last week, officials said.

We're shutting down an entire industry because 2 people got sick, and they aren't even sure of a connection with the nuts?
