FDA Alert: Salmonella in pistachios
I love nuts. However, the FDA has alerted consumers that California Prime Produce and Orange County Orchards Brands of Pistachios may be contaminated with salmonella.
The FDA visited Orca as part of its audit checks to follow up on Setton Pistachio’s recall. The FDA found that products subject to Setton Pistachio's recall had been repacked and distributed by Orca under the California Prime Produce and Orange County Orchards brands. Orca has not made a public announcement regarding these products. Therefore, the FDA is issuing this press release to alert consumers so that they can take appropriate action.
