In case you missed it there is a pistachio recall in America AND Canada because of suspected salmonella contamination. Isn't it nice to know we finally have a federal government, the FDA, responsible suppliers and a media willing to report these serious things again?

"PepsiCo Inc's North American snack division Frito-Lay recalled its unshelled pistachios in 1.75 ounce packages with sell-by dates between July 14, 2009 and December 29, 2009. The company said it has received no reports of illness related to the product, but is issuing the recall as a precaution.

Frito-Lay is also recalling its bagged pistachios in Canada, where they are sold under the Munchies brand. The recalled Munchies nuts have sell-by dates between August 4, 2009 and December 15, 2009.

Frito-Lay and its Canadian unit said their pistachios were supplied by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc, the California grower and processor which issued a recall on Tuesday of selected lots of pistachios due to salmonella."
