A big pistachio recall is underway after 11 people in several states were sickened by salmonella, reports CBS News. Trader Joe's is among those affected, recalling the following products:

  • Trader Joe's Dry Roasted & Unsalted Pistachios (UPC 0007 9990)
  • Trader Joe's Dry Roasted & Salted Pistachios (UPC 0007 9983)
  • Trader Joe's 50% Less Salt Roasted & Salted Pistachios (UPC 0011 1348)
The pistachios in question come from the California company Wonderful Pistachios and are also sold across the US under the names Wonderful and Paramount Farms. See the FDA website for the entire list of lot numbers. The company says it is working with authorities to identify the source of the problem, which has hit Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Virginia, and Washington.
