Recently, Lipari Foods, LLC. issued a recall of several raw pistachio products after testing revealed that they may be contaminated with Salmonella. These products were packaged by a sister company, JLM, and distributed to retail and restaurant locations nationwide, including Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. The recalled pistachios can be found under a myriad of brand names, including Blue Goose Market, Hollywood Market, Market Fresh Fine Foods, Roger’s Foodland, Marv & Alison’s Marketplace, Long Lake Market, Martin’s, Holiday Market, The Purple Onion, Trentwood Farms, Angeli Foods, Market Square, Village Food Market, Martha’s Vineyard, and Remke Market.
These pistachios should not be consumed. These pistachios have the potential to cause a Salmonella infection. Salmonella infections can be especially serious in children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. An infection will develop over the course of 12 to 72 hours, and will produce symptoms including vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, fever, and abdominal cramping. If you or a loved one begins to show the symptoms of Salmonella poisoning, contact a medical professional.
