Pistachios, Corona Extra recalled

Nuts linked to salmonella outbreak


If you have pistachios, check the bag.

A California producer, Wonderful Pistachios, has recalled various nut products because of a link to a strain of salmonella. The pistachios were sold under the brand names Wonderful, Paramount Farms and Trader Joe's.

The Centers for Disease Control is investigating a nine-state Salmonella Montevideo outbreak that sickened 11 people. None of the cases are in Texas.

Not all products are part of the recall, but consumers can find which are being recalled by checking the lot numbers on the bags and comparing them to a list compiled on the FDA website.

Consumers may return these products to Wonderful Pistachios for a refund by sending the product back or bottom portion of the package that contains the lot code to Wonderful Pistachios, 13646 Hwy 33, Lost Hills, CA 93249. Or they can return the package to the store. Consumers with questions can contact 844-505-3844.
