Attention SoCal Residents: El Guapo brand walnuts recalled throughout Southern California
December 9, 2010 – Yesterday, Commerce-based Mojave Foods Corp. announced the recall of El Guapo brand shelled walnuts sold throughout Southern California. The move to recall the nuts came due to the possibility of salmonella contamination.
The walnuts being recalled were sold in 1-ounce packages with the date code 5527. The nuts were supplied by Visalia-based Atlas Walnuts with the El Guapo label. Consumers should not eat the recalled products and should destroy them immediately.
Salmonella Poisoning: No Laughing Matter
It is estimated that between 2 to 4 million cases of salmonellosis occur in the U.S. annually. Most of these illnesses can be classified as gastroenteritis, often featuring severe diarrhea. But a few varieties of salmonella bacteria result in typhoid fever, a sometimes deadly disease that is more common in developing countries.
