Ok, Last year it was peanuts. Year before it was Peanut Butter. This year it's Pistachios, as of today. Looks like a couple of our migrant processor workers have migrated. When's this bullshit gonna end?

FDA Warns: Avoid Pistachios Amid Salmonella Scare
FRESNO, Calif. — In another food scare sure to rattle consumers who watched the national salmonella outbreak in peanuts unfold, federal food officials are now warning people not to eat any food containing pistachios, which could carry contamination from the same bacteria.

The Food and Drug Administration said central California-based Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc., the nation's second-largest pistachio processor, was voluntarily recalling more than 2 million pounds of its roasted nuts shipped since last fall.

"Our advice to consumers is that they avoid eating pistachio products, and that they hold onto those products," said Dr. David Acheson, assistant commissioner for food safety. "The number of products that are going to be recalled over the coming days will grow, simply because these pistachio nuts have then been repackaged into consumer-level containers."
