Company Announcement

American Gourmet of Vista, CA is recalling American Gourmet Roasted/Salted Pistachios because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. American Gourmet was informed by its Pistachio supplier to initiate a voluntary recall. Salmonella is an organism which 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, which were distributed in San Diego, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties in the state of California through retail stores and can only be identified by Best by Dates found on the lower bottom panel of the package.
