Salmonella Contamination Detected in Orange County Pistachios

By Brian Chase on June 23, 2009 - No comments

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a statement on June 22, 2009 warning consumers about salmonella-contaminated pistachios that were packed and distributed from a plant in Anaheim. According to a news report in The Orange County Register, FDA issued a food-borne illness alert cautioning consumers not to eat California Prime Produce and Orange County Orchards brands of pistachios repacked by Orca Distribution West Inc. located in Orange County. Orca reportedly received and repacked pistachios recalled by California-based Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc.

Federal officials believe that these pistachios may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria. The contamination was found after FDA inspectors visited Orca as part of their audit checks to follow up on Setton’s product recall. Although Orca repacked and distributed products subject to Setton Pistachio’s recall, Orca had not made a public announcement regarding the products, which is why the FDA issued the news alert to warn consumers. These recalled products were apparently distributed to retail locations in airports and hotels nationwide. The California Prime Produce and Orange County Orchards brands of pistachios were packaged in clear 6-ounce flexible plastic Ziploc bags, UPC Number: 8 10826011162 with Sell By Dates of 7/30/09 and 8/30/09. Consumers who have bought these salmonella-tainted pistachios are urged not to eat them. …Read the rest »
