July 1, 2009: Previously Recalled Pistachios Were Repackaged And Now Subject To Yet Another Recall

It’s just three months after the initial recall for pistachios processed by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc., yet another recall has been issued after a distributor repackaged and sold those very same recalled nuts. 

The distributor, Orca Distribution West Inc., Anaheim, CA, is recalling California Prime Produce and Orange County Orchards brand pistachios because the nuts may be contaminated with the foodborne pathogen Salmonella.  The recalled nuts were sent to airports and hotels in the U.S.

According to the FDA, both brands were packaged in clear 6-ounce flexible plastic Ziploc bags, UPC Number: 8 10826 01116 2, with Sell By Dates of 7/30/09 and 8/30/09.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  To learn more about Salmonella food poisoning, please see Salmonella Symptoms or visit our additional website dedicated to food safety and food litigation, www.foodpoisoning.com .
