Kraft Foods Conducts Nationwide Recall of Planters and Back to Nature Products Containing Pistachio Nuts Because of Possible Health Risk

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --Kraft Foods announced today a voluntary recall in the United States of Planters and Back to Nature products containing pistachio nuts that have the potential to be contaminated with the Salmonella organism.  This possible contamination is not connected with the recent outbreak associated with peanuts. 

The company is recalling all products containing pistachios supplied by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. after September 1, 2008.  Setton Pistachio issued a recall late yesterday.

A list of affected products and code dates is attached and available on kraftfoodscompany.com.  Consumers should not eat these products and discard any products they may have.  Consumers can contact the company at 1-800-310-3704 with any questions. 

This recall covers only Planters and Back to Nature products that contain pistachios.  No other Planters, Back to Nature or Kraft products are affected by this recall.

There have been no cases of Salmonellosis reported to date in connection with these products and the company is issuing this recall as a precaution.  These products were distributed to retail stores nationwide.

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.
