Energy Club Conducts Nationwide Voluntary Recall of In-Shell Pistachio Nuts Due to Possible Health Risk
818 834-8222 x174
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Pacoima, CA (April 6, 2009) – Energy Club announced the voluntary recall of Energy Club and Mucho Sabor branded in-shell salted pistachios due to potential contamination with salmonella as a follow up to the voluntary recall of roasted shelled and inshell pistachios announced by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. on March 30, 2009. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
The products have been distributed to retail stores nationwide and Canada. A list of affected products and code dates is listed below. The code date is located on the front of each package. This recall covers only Energy Club and Mucho Sabor products that contain in shell pistachios. No other Energy Club and Mucho Sabor products are affected by this recall.
