Pistachio recall expands (plus conspiracy theory)
The two million pounds of pistachios recalled last week weren’t enough. Now that number has doubled. California-based Setton can’t rule out the possibility of salmonella in its entire 2008 crop, so it’s recalling all roasted pistachios and raw shelled ones. Previously only in-shell roasted ones were recalled. (Got that straight?)
The FDA’s Web site keeps adding recalled “pistachio-containing products.” When this ordeal was announced last week, only seven products were listed; now it’s more than 50.
But pistachio lovers fear not.
