First It Was Peanuts... Now Pistachios!

1 million pounds of roasted pistachio products have been recalled from a California food plant due to possible salmonella contamination. CNN reports that the pistachios "were largely distributed in 2,000-pound containers to food wholesalers who would then package them for resale or incorporate them as ingredients in other products, such as ice cream and trail mix." This recall is preventative and so far there have been no accounts of sickness, but the FDA is advising consumers not to eat any pistachio products.

It is safe to say its time to fall back on nuts for a minute.
