The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers that The Nuthouse is recalling 5 lb boxes and bags of pistachios because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The company is recalling the items as a precautionary measure following a recall of all roasted & salted in-shell pistachios by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc.
Salmonella poisoning occurs when a person consumes food contaminated with the bacteria. The illness causes flu-like symptoms including diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. These symptoms usually begin 12-72 hours after infection, and will typically last up to a week.
In rare cases, Salmonella poisoning can cause serious illness and produce more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.
To date there has not been any reports of illness in conjunction with the recalled items.
Consumers that may have purchased any recalled pistachios from the Nuthouse can contact the company at 213.623.2541 between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM pacific time.
