Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. Expands Voluntary Recall of Pistachios

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Terra Bella, CA (April 6, 2009) – Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. today announced that it is expanding its voluntarily recall of pistachios to include all roasted shelled pistachios and roasted in-shell pistachios from its 2008 crop due to potential contamination with the Salmonella organism.  The Company is also recalling raw shelled pistachios from the 2008 crop that are not subsequently roasted prior to retail sale.  The brands packaged for retail sale subject to recall can be found in the table below.  The voluntary recall was expanded as a precaution.

Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella’s raw in-shell pistachio shipments are NOT affected by this recall expansion.  To date, there have been no confirmed cases of salmonellosis associated with the Company’s products.

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.

On March 30, 2009, the Company announced a voluntary recall of specific lots of bulk roasted shelled pistachios, certain tote bags of roasted in-shell pistachios, and Setton Farms brand roasted salted shelled pistachios in 9 oz. film bags. 

The Company is sending recall notices to its commercial customers who received recalled bulk products with instructions for returning or destroying the recalled products and for notifying their customers of the recall.  Firms that have further mixed, used as ingredients, repackaged, or distributed the recalled bulk products are being advised to recall those products and contact their local FDA recall coordinator.  For retail products, consumers should return them to the place of purchase or destroy them.  

The recall is being undertaken with the knowledge of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Setton Pistachio has established a toll free number, (888) 228-3717, for consumers to call for further information, Monday through Friday 8 am to ­5 pm EDT.

The following bulk items were distributed to the following states:  WA, MA, AL, OH, CA, NY, MI, IL, NJ, TN, GA, IN, AZ, OR, TX, MO, VA, AR, CO, NE, KY, MN, FL, NC, MD, NV, NM, VT and Canada, Korea, Hong Kong, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, UK, France, Cyprus, Greece, Lebanon, Norway, Ukraine and Ecuador.
