Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Whole Foods, Publix, Kroger Pistachio Recall

The whole world is going nuts (but we already knew that). Pistachios are being recalled everywhere for salmonella food poisoning. First there was peanut butter, peanuts, and peanut meal from Peanut Corporation of America’s Blakely, Georgia plant.

Then the peanut recall was expanded to include products from the Peanut Corporation of America’s Plainview, Texas plant. There have been hundreds of peanut recalls for trail mix, ice cream products, pastries, energy bars and dietary supplements, candy, and a multitude of other products.

Now, here comes the pistachio recalls.

Whole Foods Market recalled in-shell pistachios.

Kroger recalled their Private Selection of pistachios at their family of stores — in the 31 states where Kroger operates are included in this expanded recall: Kroger, Ralphs, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, King Soopers, Smith’s, Dillons, QFC, City Market, Foods Co., Jay C, Scott’s, Owen’s, Baker’s, Gerbes, Hilander and Pay Less.

Publix Supermarket are recalling 6-oz packages of pistachios.

This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
