FDA says to avoid pistachios amid salmonella scare

TERRA BELLA, Calif. ” The company at the center of a nationwide pistachio recall says it believes the salmonella contamination is likely not from a human or animal source inside their plant.

Lee Cohen, the production manager for Setton International Foods Inc., said Tuesday the company suspects roasted pistachios sold to Kraft Foods may have become mixed with raw nuts that could have contained traces of the bacteria.

The pistachios were processed at central California-based Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc., which is in the corporate family of Setton International Foods Inc.

Meanwhile, Kraft expanded its recall to include any Planters and Back to Nature products that contain pistachios.
