FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Federal food officials are warning people not to eat any food containing pistachios. That's because of possible contamination by salmonella.
The Food and Drug Administration says California-based Setton Pistachio, the nation's second-largest pistachio processor, was voluntarily recalling more than 2 million pounds of its roasted nuts shipped since last fall.
A top FDA official urges consumers to avoid eating pistachio products but that "they hold onto those products" until more is known.
Two people called the FDA complaining of gastrointestinal illness that could be associated with the nuts, but the link hasn't been confirmed.
