I'll bet good money it will be just like the other food born illness issues where they are using gray water to irigate the crops and that is just not a good idea!

chinese pistachio's? ;?

I used to eat the red ones years ago, but I haven't seen that style in ages.

Good thing I didn't buy the 10lb bag of them last week at Costco!

I had to throw away a big bag just yesterday.
I opened it up and found that the nuts had all turned green!

Maybe hold off on those Costco pistachios for now.


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."

The FDA learned about the problem last Tuesday, when Kraft Foods Inc. notified the agency that it had detected salmonella in roasted pistachios through routine product testing.

Because Setton Pistachio shipped tote bags of nuts weighing up to 2,000 pounds to 36 wholesalers across the country, it will take weeks to figure out how many products could be affected, said Jeff Farrar, chief of the Food and Drug Branch of the California Department of Public Health.

They aren't around long enough. Costco only sells the little 4-lb bags.

Go green, save the local landfills. Do NOT toss those horrible, unsafe nuts into the dumpster.

Being the good 'merican that I strive to be, this offer is to accept all UPS packages sent to me that are filled with those tainted pistaccios.

Send me a PM and I'll send you the "safe" address for proper disposal.

Stop flicking boogers into the bag and you'll be just fine.

It gives a new meaning to "Hey! I got a crunchy one."

Yes. You will wake up in he morning and recognize Obama as 'the chosen one' -- thus making you basically an average Canadian.
