Braga Organic Farms has announced a voluntary recall of its products containing pistachios due to potential Salmonella contamination.
The affected products include Raw Pistachio Kernels, Trail Mix and Nut Mix.
According to the FDA, no illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.
The recalled nuts were distributed in retail stores in California, Oregon and Washington and through online sales nationwide.
The product comes in a clear or green standup bag, with the date code stamped on the bottom of the bag.
The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the FDA revealed the presence of Salmonella in a one-pound package of raw pistachio kernels purchased online.
No other Braga Organic Farms products are associated with this voluntary recall.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems.
