Pistachiorecall.org lists brands that do not contain pistachios from Setton

FRESNO, Calif., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Pistachio growers and processors today announced a new Web site - www.pistachiorecall.org - that lists specific pistachio products and brands that do not contain pistachios from Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc.

The Web site is produced by CAL-PURE, a co-op of California pistachio growers ("CAL-PURE"), and the Western Pistachio Association ("WPA") and is accessible directly and via a link on the FDA Web site at www.fda.gov/pistachios. The new site is being made available in light of a pistachio recall by the processor, Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc., due to potential Salmonella contamination. The recall action has been taken on a precautionary basis, and the FDA reports no illnesses tied to the recalled pistachios.

Only pistachios processed by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. are affected by the recall measures, and the majority of processors, pistachio products and foods containing pistachio products do not contain pistachios from Setton. The new Web site, www.pistachiorecall.org, will be updated on an ongoing basis to ensure consumers have access to the latest, most accurate information available related to such products.

The health and safety of consumers is the pistachio growers and processors number-one priority and, as such, CAL-PURE and the WPA are committed to continuing to work closely with regulators and industry leaders to address questions about pistachio safety. The pistachio community is dedicated to providing a safe, wholesome product and is eager to quickly put any concerns to rest so that consumers can enjoy pistachios and pistachio products with confidence.

For additional details about the Setton Pistachio recall, consumers may also visit www.fda.gov/pistachios for the latest information, as well as products that are affected by the voluntary recall. The FDA site also provides updates on the status of the recall, which as of today, includes the following revised statement:

"FDA is advising consumers not to eat pistachios or food products containing them (such as pistachio bakery goods and pistachio ice cream) unless they can determine that the products do not contain pistachios from Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc. The FDA consumer alert is available at this link: http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2009/NEW01982.html"
