In a nutshell: The nut doesn’t fall from the tree (bad pun). Earlier today I posted about a big recall from an Oregon hazelnut farmer because of possible salmonella food poisoning, and of course, it has a domino effect. It’s fortunate that hazelnuts are probably not as popular has peanuts so perhaps the 28,000 + pounds of recalled nuts won’t be as widespread.
States affected in the Whole Foods recall are: California, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
Here’s the press release from Whole Foods as distributed by the FDA.
Do you like hazelnuts?
I think they are an acquired taste. I love Nutella but don’t like hazelnut flavored coffee.
