Update: H-E-B Recalls Pistachios Over Potential Salmonella Contamination
December 14, 2016 – Texas grocery chain H-E-B has issued a nationwide recall for bulk and packaged raw shelled pistachios because they may be contaminated with salmonella. All affected products have been removed from H-E-B and Central Market Texas stores, and no illness have been reported to date in connection with the recall. The issue was discovered during routine sampling by the FDA.
What’s the problem?
August 23, 2010 – GloryBee Foods, Inc., of Eugene, Oregon is voluntarily recalling Aunt Patty’s brand 5 pound bags of Whole Raw Pistachios and 25 lb. boxes of Specialty Commodities brand Whole Raw Pistachios Kernels, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
The Whole Raw Pistachio Kernels were distributed in Oregon (Western to Central Oregon) and Washington (Western Washington) by direct delivery to retail stores and bakeries.
Whole Raw Pistachio Kernels were sold to GloryBee Foods, Inc. in 25 lb. boxes from Specialty Commodities, Inc. Labels on these boxes consist of “Packed for Specialty Commodities, Los Angeles, CA. 90010.” The sides of the boxes are stamped in red with the lot number 32043.

What kind of infection does Salmonella cause?
Salmonella bacteria attacks the stomach and intestines. In more serious cases, the bacteria may enter the lymph tracts, which carry water and protein to the blood, and the blood itself. The bacteria attack all age groups and both sexes. Children, the elderly, and people who are already ill are much more likely to get a serious infection.
