I was dismayed to see the pistachio recall that started while on vacation. I like pistachios - a lot - and often buy them for us to snack on. I noticed a lot of pistachio products still on the shelves while at the grocery store this morning but didn't buy any because of the recall.
So, I was happy to receive an e-mail from Paramount Farms, "the largest grower and processor of almonds and pistachios in the world." They're spreading the word that there are still a lot of pistachio products not affected by the recall of pistachios from Setton Farms.
You can check the status of your favorite pistachio product at the website PistachioRecall.org. The website is a collaboration between the FDA and California pistachio growers/processors. The website has an easy to view list of all of the brands not containing the recalled pistachios. (Note that though this site is a collaboration between the pistachio companies and the FDA, the FDA does not certify that the information on the PistachioRecall website is accurate.)
You can also go straight to the FDA's website for information on the pistachio recall.
