Company recalls pistachios due to health concern

MIAMI (AP) - A Miami nut company is recalling its pistachio products due to a health concern.

Barnard Nut Company spokesman Abel Menendez says the recall issued Wednesday was as a precaution due to a similar recall by
Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. Menendez says no illnesses
have been reported.

The other recall was due to contamination with salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and those with weakened
immune systems.

Consumers who have purchased products such as Nuts About Florida
Pistachios or La Botana de Don Pepe Pistachios should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.

Or call the Barnard Nut Company at 305-836-9999.
