The following health alert is from the FDA on July 10, 2015.

Maya Overseas Foods Inc., Maspeth, NY, is recalling approximately 8000 lbs. of Cashew Split because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The Cashew Split was distributed between February 18, 2015 and March 20, 2015 to retailers and restaurants located in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Florida by direct trucking and delivery.
Maya brand Cashew Split was sold uncoded in 7 oz. (UPC 020843230389), 14 oz. (UPC 020843230716), 28 oz. (UPC 020843230327) and 5 lbs. (UPC 020843230303) clear plastic pouches. The Cashew Split was also sold in bulk 50 lbs. tins.
The recall was as the result of routine FDA sampling at our supplier which revealed that the bulk Cashew Split contained the bacteria. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the product as FDA and the supplier continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.
Consumers who have purchased Maya brand Cashew Split are urged not to consume the product and to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-894-5145, Monday - Friday, 9 am - 5 pm ET.
